    The first full five star book I ve read in 2016 a breakneck ride through twentieth century Ukrainian history, the experience of writing in a neglected language, and a tortured relationship between two tortured Ukrainian artists in America, told in spectacular twisty turny extended sentence prose by a brilliant author and poet thatof you GR experimental fans should be reading Don

    This book is amazing It took a little bit to get into I struggled in the first 50 pages You can not skim this book Don t even try The prose style is rather unforgiving, but that really is the point The point is to chew it To go slowly To go back and forth over sentences and phrases This is a painful, occasionally hard to follow narrative of the grotesque end of a love affair punctu

    I m stalled I seem to have lost my desire to loose myself in her words.She is sarcastic, sharp and unfortunately rambling in her tug of war, with the love and hate she feels for her country, her man, her life It was one of those times that I kept looking forward to a full stop or oh yes the end of a paragraph What kept me reading was the flashes of insight which I cherished and wanted

    Woman s emotions and feelings as they are Oksana has nothing to hide from her readers and you could be sometimes shocked by her honesty Very bright and vivid modern Ukrainian language.

    Typically stream of consciousness writing is not my cup of tea and I struggled with the book in this respect Nevertheless a pick for me, because some of the writing while harsh is beautiful so harsh content but beautiful writing I am not surprised that this book was considered revolutionary at the time and still is.

    A brilliant Eastern European poet learns the hard way that it can be hell to be a relationship with a painter Not a conventional novel,a prose poem rant with aspirations to be the Ukrainian Second Sex Zabushko riffs on Ukrainian history, men and women, and the neglible place of poetry in today s society Perhapsof a three star than a four star book, but it s unusual, andCrossing deserves credit for publ
