Summary
Svetlana Alexievich reinvents a singular, polyphonic literary form, bringing together the voices of dozens of witnesses to the collapse of the USSR in a formidable attempt to chart the disappearance of a culture and to surmise what new kind of man may emerge from the rubble. Shortlisted for the Baillie Gifford Prize (formerly the Samuel Johnson Prize) 2016
