The book by Andriy Lyubka is in the ranking of the best Ukrainian books of 2018

Pen Ukraine summed up the results of the literary year in the country and published the rating of Ukrainian books of 2018.

In the category "Ukrainian prose", Andriy Lyubka's book "Your Gaze. Chio Chio San" ranked tenth. This book has an incredible story. 

"A drunk judge runs over and kills a young woman on a pedestrian crossing and, of course, avoids punishment without much trouble. But the victim's husband is not the one, who can be bought or intimidated, he wants revenge. A psychological thriller about contemporary Ukraine, where the value of human life is measured in bribes, and murderers are in the first rows at church services. But what does Puccini and the gaze of Madame Butterfly have to do with it? Is the line between good and evil really clear in this novel? Readers will not find answers to the last question until the ending. And maybe even after it."

Members of the Pen Ukraine added to their list only the books marked "must read", that is the books that had impressed, affected the readers.
