Pavlo Volvach. Sny neofita. (Dreams of the Neophyte)
"The juicy panorama of life presenting a recent novice criminal, proletarian, self-employed manual worker, now young poet and journalist is wrapped in a veil of hope, through which Kyiv looms: as a dream coming true and the opportunity for further transformations. But this is in store. So far the reader sees the provincial space having it all: thieves and journalists, Makhno adepts and governors, "Spas" fighters and literature group poets. Legendary poet and dissident Kholodny in pages of the novel is presented next to criminal Medved, and mystic Chudin is somehow combined with sex symbol Natalka Shamonina. And the City dominates over all of them. Now Zaporizhya, which Volvach with his "Class" added to the map of the Ukrainian literature."
In Ukrainian.

Myroslav Layuk. Babornya.


This is really a terrible, appalling, ruthless, and therefore wonderful novel. Careful picturesque analysis of the rotten and sadistic generation that brought up the present generations, lovingly handing them over their rottenness and beastliness. What thrills is that in Layuk's case they did not come across a right guy. He does not have a single drop of the expected masochism.
