The novel began on Facebook as a series of bulletins from an alternative reality and is written entirely in blocks of 100 words. Andrei Kurkov, author of 'Death and the Penquin' (Penquin Publications), described it as a 'hologrammatic' novel, 'a series of beautifully crafted puzzles'....
The book is set in Ukraine after a war with Russia. A man has lost his memory because the Russian military have used his brain to control military satellites. He regains consciousness in a mysterious hospital-like building and begins a pilgrimage to find his past. He journeys to Kaharlyk, a town where time has stood still following the testing of an experimental weapon.
The book is an Odyssey as magical as Alice's tumble through the looking glass or Gulliver's first footprints on the sands of Lilliput. Kaharlyk has featured in Index on Censorship, The Guardian and many other publications.
