Julia Kissina – Springtime on the Moon – in Estonian

new publication

Estonian edition published by Eesti Raamat

Julia Kissina is a renowned Ukrainian writer and artist living in Berlin and New York City. Her novel SPRINGTIME ON THE MOON is both a memoir of Kyiv and a coming-of-age story. A rebellious and visionary girl grows up in the milieu of the bourgeois Jewish intelligentsia in a high-rise building on the outskirts of Kyiv‘s old town.

“In addition to the surrealism of morbid images, it is the precise, often mercilessly mocking … language that makes “Spring on the Moon” an event… With Julia Kissina‘s novel, Kyiv has become a place that from now on has its place on the mytho-poetic map of Eastern Europe.“

“Springtime on the Moon» is often studiedly amusing, but the attempt to take more than light fiction from her own memories lends Kissina’s book a Nabokovian dimension… As funny as Kaminer and as serious as Nabokov.“

Sergii Rudenko – Battle for Kyiv – in Finnish

new publication

Finnish translation published by Tammi

In February 2022 Russia invaded Ukraine: the taking of the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, was a declared main goal of the “special operation”. Both the seat of government and the base of President Zelenskyi, Putin‘s number one enemy, are in Kyiv. Whoever controls Kyiv controls Ukraine. The unexpectedly successful defense of the capital and the expulsion of the Russian occupiers from the surrounding settlements in the greater Kyiv area was a crucial turning point in the course of the war.

Sergii Rudenko, the author of a political biography about Ukrainian President Zelenskyi (sold to 25 languages), is giving a close and personal insight in his new book BATTLE FOR KYIV about this incredible spirit of resistance, which neither Putin‘s generals nor the Western world had counted on and which made it clear that the war in Ukraine and the battle for Kyiv is also a battle for freedom and self-determination in Europe. Only with the liberation of the villages around Kyiv and the gruesome discoveries of Bucha and Irpin would the Western world finally realize that this is also a battle to defend human dignity.
