Dzielnica D | Artem Czech

“Knowing that “Dzielnica D” (District D) is largely an autobiography, I viewed it from the perspective of Artem as a man and as a writer. What was the environment and the atmosphere in which he grew up? What kind of people and events influenced him? I’ve found all this in the book. Alternating between humour and sadness, the author paints a collective portrait of several dozen of inhabitants of his ordinary and typical district that, as I’ve mentioned before, isn’t the prettiest and is quite hopeless, located in an equally ordinary and typical Ukrainian city.”

Ołeksandr Bojczenko (from the introduction)

 Artem Czech combines many elements: the chronicle of a great change (with an almost sociological precision of diagnosis) and a dozen or so lives that overlap in the foreground of the narrative, forming a pattern as intricate as the most beautiful embroidery.

Wojciech Stanisławski

The Ukrainian author’s short stories can be confidently described as “nostalgic prose” attempting to define Ukrainian identity during turbulent political changes. Unlike in Poland, these times are far from over in the East.
