The eight destination of my summer reading challenge, Around Europe in 14 Books, is Ukraine.
I was at a loss about which book to choose as, on the international scene, Ukrainian books are generally overshadowed by Russian ones. On my Goodreads To-Read list, I had saved a novel called The Museum of Abandoned Secrets by Oksana Zabuzhko, but its 700+ page count deterred me from choosing it.
Luckily my friend suggested another Zabuzhko novel called Fieldwork in Ukrainian Sex. This book is not even 200 pages, however, it was still difficult to read. You’ll understand why if you go on and read my review below.
