Iryna Starovoyt. Hroninhensky rukopys. (Groningen Manuscript)
"If it is true that all of us are walking books, then this book was written from the reverse perspective of journeys. It contains the European poetry on the Ukrainian memory and oblivion, and family detective stories. On the homeland as a personal cause. On the in-depth efforts of the future. On the genetic fear, but also a conscious victory over it. Poems without drafts, brakes, or boundaries."

I can only add that it is one of the best collections of women's poetry that I have had a chance to read recently. Very intimate – but understood with the intuition – but multi-layered – but transparent – but... Sophisticated and simple at the same time – living poetry..

Borys Khersonsky. Kosmosnash.
