Date: 23 Oct. 2013YE Bookstore and KSD Publishers are pleased to invite you to the presentation of Yaroslav Melnyk’s book Daleky prostir (“The Far Reaches”) on 23 October. Beginning at 18:00. It is not without a reason that Yaroslav Melnyk is called a unique phenomenon in contemporary Ukrainian literature. Three European countries are proud to consider his books part of their literary heritage. Melnyk’s books have been numerous times shortlisted for the Lithuanian Book of the Year, they have been several times nominated for the European literary award. In 2012 this author became the finalist of the BBC Book of the Year in Ukraine. In a world where eyes are considered an atavism, and the ability to see is regarded a mental sickness, a sighted boy is born. Doctors are trying to cure Habr, but he has already learned the dreadful secret of the rulers of this colossal skyscraper state, where electronic sensors control millions of people. And the people have no idea that they live above the clouds. Will the protagonist be able to escape the Ministry of Control? Three worlds, three loves, and the eternal longing for freedom and light make Melnyk’s novel a spiritual phenomenon. Moderated by Viktor Neborak.
