Viktoria Amelina. Syndrom lystopadu. (The November Syndrome)
"If it were not for the protagonist's mental deviation which fills the story with strange delusions we would get a biography of quite an ordinary contemporary of ours, who got adapted to the social changes and survived to this day. However, the fantastic capacity of the protagonist, and his visions, which dot through the entire book, and the author's original parables that enrich the space of the text with an additional dimension make "The November Syndrome" a complex polyphonic work.
Through of the unique ability of the protagonist to feel and experience other people's suffering, the author weaves the Ukrainian events of recent years into the context of the recent history of the world. And it is not so much about political parallels (say, Kyiv Maidan and Tahrir Square in Egypt), but rather about that in today's globalized world there are no and cannot be any local conflicts."
