Mykola Riabchuk. Do Chapli na urodyny. (To Heron's Birthday Party)
"This book of short stories by Mykola Ryabchuk, one of prominent representatives of the Ukrainian prose underground of the 1970's, includes the best works of his Lviv period. The artistic innovation of Ryabchuk the prose writer, whose works are characterized by the paradox and elegant irony combined with sympathy, lyricism, and light melancholia, has still not been properly appreciated. His short stories highlight tragedies of a little individual in a totalitarian society, which still remains relevant nowadays."
