Volodymyr Danylenko. Kapelyukh Sikorskoho. (Sikorsky's Hat)
"Due to a delay of flights in the snow-covered "Boryspil" airport, two strangers meet. While waiting for flights' resuming, one of them narrates an unbelievable story, how a woman and a hat influenced success of the prominent aircraft designer.

It is to this unknown page in the secret life of the designer-to-be with a woman that the world must be grateful for appearance of the helicopter. A novel about the wonderful love of the young Igor Sikorsky and Karolina Huliy, feelings to whom he carried all through his life, about emigration of "obsessed" people from Ukraine, "small-Russia" complexes and the successful Ukrainians who devoted their talents to strange countries."
