Via Dan at Orange Ukraine - a novel by Marina Lewycka, a British author of Ukrainian descent, has been shortlisted for the 2005 Orange Prize for Fiction.

It's futile to judge a book by a random selection of reviews on it - but, when one is stuck with no access to quality bookstores, it is unavoidable. From what I've read in the Times, Lewycka's novel - A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian - should be an interesting read - even though Andrei Kurkov sort of hated it.
