Publisher: Glagoslav Publications Limited Release date: 2014-01-16

Description

Amidst the political unrest that divides Ukraine lately, Eugenia Kononenko explores the Ukrainian burden of the "e;Russian scenario"e; in her new novel A Russian StoryHe is young, intelligent, well educated, with patriotic sentiments. But certain misunderstandings oblige him to flee from Ukraine. For some reason, everything in his life builds up to a certain Russian scenario. So to what extent should one burden Ukrainians with the outcome of this Russian Story? Finding himself involuntarily identified with Pushkin's Eugene Onegin, the hero of the novel, Eugene Samarsky, becomes a 'superfluous man' in Ukraine. The novel by Eugenia Kononenko deals with love and the quest for one's own identity, with the vaguely remembered circumstances rendering life nonsensical in Ukraine during the last years of the empire and the early years of independence. It considers the possibility of a mid-Atlantic meeting in today's globalised world.***Thistitlehasbeenrealisedbyateamofthefollowingdedicatedprofessionals: Translated by Patrick John Corness,MaximHodak- N (Publisher),MaxMendor- N N (Director),YanaKovalskaya andCamillaStein.
