Date: 6 Nov. 2013YE Bookstore and Komora Publishers have the pleasure to invite you to the presentation of the book Storozhi trotuaru (“Guards of the Pavement”) by Michael (Mykhailo Myshkalo) on 6 November. Beginning at 18:00. “Guards of the Pavement is the first instance when the 1980-90s lost generation’s voice has been heard in Ukrainian literature. They are the gastarbeiter generation, scattered all over the world in the quest for the Promised Land. They are the generation of “never existing Lviv”: the city of the vanished enterprises and dorms, theatres and museums, railway stations and pubs. The generation, lost at the break of civilisations, whose often dramatic experience still awaits its chroniclers.” Mykhailo “Michael” Myshkalo was born in 1964 in Uzhorod. In 1986 he obtained his degree in electrophysics from the Lviv Polytechnical Institute. Later he enrolled for international relations at the Ivan Franko National University in Lviv, but never completed the programme. His works have been printed in the newspapers Postup, Tyzhden, Arka, Arhument-hazeta, and magazines Yi and Makler. Until recently Myshkalo worked as a translator for the internet portal Zakhidna analitychna hrupa (Zgroup.com.ua). He has a son, and his hobbies include books and jazz.
