Davis Center Reads: Lucky Breaks
Yevgenia Belorusets’s short story collection, Lucky Breaks, translated into English by Eugene Ostashevsky, tells the stories of Ukrainian women from the Donbass region, fleeing war and ruin. Described in the New Yorker as “ethnographic in perspective but Gogolian in register,” Lucky Breaks presents narratives that too often go untold and unnoticed: the stories of ordinary women living in extraordinary circumstances.
Yevgenia Belorusets will join Davis Center Outreach for a conversation about her collection, the power of stories in wartime, and the unusual narrative decisions she made in writing this book. The first ten registrants will receive a free copy of the book.
