Oksana Sabushko

  • The longest book tour
  • Literature

One day before the Russian invasion on February 24, 2022, Ukrainian writer Oksana Sabushko had traveled to Warsaw for a two-day book presentation. This has now turned into the “longest book tour” as she did not return to Ukraine. In order to understand the current war events, it helps to look into the past. What was the impact of the First and Second World Wars? What has happened since Ukrainian independence in 1991, and what role do the political events of 2004 and 2014 play? Zabushko gets to the bottom of these questions. She weaves personal experiences into her analyses and provides subjective insights into what is a collective trauma for the Ukrainian population.

Oksana Sabushko, born in 1960 in Luzk, is one of the most important Ukrainian writers today. She studied philosophy in Kiev, Harvard and Pittsburgh. She takes a critical feminist and postcolonialist stance on the politics and history of her country. Since the beginning of the war she has been living on the run.
