Reviews

"Andrey Kurkov's Ukraine Diaries offer a unique personal insight into one of the world's most complex trouble spots. The fact that Kurkov lives in the heart of Kiev, and the fact that he can write so well, give an eloquence and immediacy to his account of day to day life in the teeth of a crisis. This is history, with feeling" -- Michael Palin "[Kurkov writes] in the style of an informed but convivial flaneur, and his entries crackle with irony and humour" -- Marcus Tanner * Independent * "Controlled rage and wry wit, nicely captured in Sam Taylor's translation... Kurkov's diaries are valuable" * The Economist * "As his diaries make clear, real life has outstripped his blackly comic fiction for surreal detail, political cynicism and latent menace" -- Ben Hoyle * The Times, Book of the week * "The power...lies in the interweaving of the extraordinary and the mundane" -- John Thornhill * Financial Times *
