The Khomenko Family Chronicles
Climb on a plane and in eight hours you’re in New York. Wonderful… Chernobyl? Even easier. It’s close by. They run day trips down there.
As Lyosha lies in hospital counting the days to his next birthday, his parents relate stories about the world outside and from their family history. Stories marked by significant dates, 26 April 1986 and 11 September 2001.
A light-hearted and touching family portrait pitched against the darker milestones of global history.
