2014-03-19 16:43:57 - In this turbulent for Ukraine time, Glagoslav releases a one of a kind collection of stories written by contemporary female writers that represent new independent Ukraine. Now the English speaking world gets a chance to hear from the very heart of the country that’s been in the center of global attention since Euromaidan – Ukrainian women, modern, outspoken, active and persuasive in their vocalization of the Ukrainian dream.

Women’s prose writing has exploded on the literary scene in Ukraine just prior to and following Ukrainian independence in 1991. Over the past two decades scores of fascinating new women authors have emerged. These authors write in a wide variety of styles and genres including short stories, novels, essays, and new journalism.

The collection of stories compiled by Michael M.Nayadn features works of Oksana Zabuzko, Eugenia Kononenko, Maria Matios, Natalka Sniadanko, Iren Rozdobudko, Larysa Denysenko, Svitlana Povalyaeva, Lina Kostenko and other prominent women writers of modern Ukraine. In the Anthology the reader will find an entire gamut of these Ukrainian women writers’ experiences that range from deep spirituality to candid depictions of sexuality and interpersonal relations. It contains urban prose,

edgy, caustic, and intellectual; as well as prose harkening back to village life and profound tragedies from the Soviet past that have left marks of trauma on an entire nation. This is a collection of Ukrainian women’s stories, histories that serve to tell her unique stories in English translation. Substantial excerpts from novels and translations of complete shorter works of each author will give the reader deep insight into this burgeoning phenomenon of contemporary Ukrainian women’s prose.

The volume is compiled, edited and accompanied with a critical introduction by Michael M. Naydan, Woskob Family Professor of Ukrainian Studies at The Pennsylvania State University. Seventeen different translators from around the world have contributed translations to the volume.
