Taras Prokhasko. Tak, ale... (Yes, But...)


Taras Prokhasko, who has long promised to us to write a novel, has not done that again. But he has written – about the future that is long past and about everything that is already here, but nobody knows how long it will be here... And also about that one needs to sleep attentively, have breakfast – in one's own way, and watch by shifting the viewfinder. But the main thing here..

Artem Chapay. The Ukraine.
