This short fiction anthology is divided equally between Ukrainian writers and Canadian writers of Ukrainian descent. It explores, for the first time in a fictional way, the complete spectrum of the Ukrainian experience, from the perspective of writers in Ukraine and Ukrainian writers in Canada. Included are introductory essays by the two editors.

The 10 stories by Canadian writers were selected and edited by well-known Canadian author/editor Janice Kulyk Keefer. Solomea Pavlychko was Editor-in-Chief of Osnovy Publishers in Kyiv.

"This a great way to introduce Ukrainian writers to Canadians and Ukrainian-Canadian writers to Ukrainians."-Winnipeg Free Press
