520    "Out of the impoverished coal regions of Ukraine known as 
       the Donbass, where Russian secret military intervention 
       coexists with banditry and insurgency, the women of 
       Yevgenia Belorusets's captivating collection of stories 
       emerge from the ruins of a war, still being waged on and 
       off, ever since the 2014 Revolution of Dignity. Through a 
       series of unexpected encounters, we are pulled into the 
       ordinary lives of these anonymous women: a florist, a 
       cosmetologist, card players, readers of horoscopes, the 
       unemployed, and a witch who catches newborns with a mitt. 
       One refugee tries unsuccessfully to leave her broken 
       umbrella behind as if it were a sick relative; a private 
       caregiver in a disputed zone saves her elderly charge from
       the angel of death; a woman sits down on International 
       Women's Day and can no longer stand up; a soldier decides 
       to marry war. Belorusets threads these tales of ebullient 
       survival with a mix of humor, verisimilitude, the 
       undramatic, and a profound Gogolian irony. She also weaves
       in twenty-three photographs that, in lyrical and 
       historical counterpoint, form their own remarkable visual 
       narrative"--|cProvided by publisher.
