Do you know any Ukrainian authors? Perhaps you've heard of Nikolai Gogol. Maybe you even saw the 2014 movie "Viy", a scary adventure film that was based on one of Gogol's novels. Did you think that Gogol was a Russian writer? Surprise! He was Ukrainian. The next question is a little trickier: do you know any modern Ukrainian authors? We hope that you do, but many people don't. Why not? It's not a simple question.
It turns out that Ukrainian literature is in the shadow of a "big brother" - Russian literature. In fact, many Ukrainian authors write in Russian and are therefore considered to be Russian authors! We think that this isn't fair, and we're trying to change the situation.
At ReadUkrainian.com, you can read short examples of modern Ukrainian books. If you like a particular book, contact our site's administration or contact the author directly to discuss translation options. If you can't translate the text yourself, ask a translator. If you are a publisher, ask the author about printing his/her book.
Nowadays, the world has a tremendous interest in Ukraine, including Ukrainian history, music, and politics. Help us bring more Ukrainian literature to readers around the world!
