About the Author

Svetlana Alexievich, a journalist and prose writer, lives in Minsk, Belarus. In 2015 she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Reviews

A masterpiece of reportage, probably her best book.--Timothy Snyder
"[Alexievich's] voice is much more than the sum of [her subject's] voices . . . [making] that war as all-encompassingly present and personal--as real--as any fictional account ever did for any other war.--Philip Gourevitch
For the past 30 or 40 years [Alexievich has] been busy mapping the Soviet and post-Soviet individual, but [her work is] not really about a history of events. It's a history of emotions--what she's offering us is really an emotional world, . . . a history of the soul.--Sara Danius, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy
