Black square : adventures in the post-Soviet world
Pinkham, Sophie2016
Articles
In the tradition of Barbara Demick and Katherine Boo, 'Black Square' presents an evocative, multidimensional portrait of post-Soviet life under the shadow of Putin. In vivid, original prose, Sophie Pinkham draws us into the fascinating lives of her contemporaries - a generation that came of age after the fall of the USSR, only to see protestors shot on Kiev's main square, Maidan; Crimea annexed by Russia; and a bitter war in eastern Ukraine. Amid the rubble, Pinkham tells stories that convey a youth culture flourishing amid the rubble of a tragically corrupt state.
