Unbound: Ukrainian Canadians Writing Home Edited by Lisa Brekul & Lindy Ledohowski
2016, Hardcover


"Unbound: Ukrainian Canadians Writing Home is a book about what it means to belong to an ethnos, if not an ethnic community, in a globalized world, and how a sense of identification with one's ancestral pastrubs up against one's present, creating sparks that can help fire the literary imagination.

A postmodern mash-up of memories, critical reflections, creative ruminations, and pointed questions that probe the boundaries of one's own skin and sense of kin, the contributors' essays grapple with their conflicted identities with a frankness that is frequently uncomfortable, yet, more often than not, liberating. Their craft and artistry provides food for thought that goes well beyond the stereotypes of borscht and cabbage rolls."
