Ukraine. Vyshyvanka and Pickled Watermelons – Q&A with writer Katarzyna Łoza

Ukraine is a country full of contrasts: it was founded on the myth of Cossacks, but torn between East and West. Here, national identity is not always connected with the knowledge of the language, and the fastest test of whether you are yours is the question: whose Crimea? This book is a bittersweet journey through the country, where you go to an orthodox church and a fortune-teller at the same time, a fur hangs in the wardrobe next to a traditional vyshyvanka, and the taste of a vegetable salad is mixed with caviar and pickled watermelon.
