BOOKS OF THE WEEK - 01 JULY 2016

Second-Hand Time 
by - Svetlana Alexievich 

About the Book : 
What if you could tell history through the countless voices of ordinary people who lived through it? In Second-hand Time, Nobel Prize winner Svetlana Alexievich invents a new genre as she writes the life stories of housewives, artists, party workers, students, soldiers and traders living through a time of political upheaval – the fall of the Soviet Union and the two decades that followed it. As they tell her their secrets, their passions, their sorrows, their hopes, she builds a picture of a nation and of lived history, as epic as the greatest of novels. One of the most extraordinary books ever written, Second-hand Time is Alexievich’s fi nest work.

About the Author :
Svetlana Alexievich was born in the Ukraine in 1948. She has spent most of her life in the Soviet Union and present-day Belarus, where she worked as a journalist, with prolonged periods of exile in Western Europe. She won the 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature for ‘her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time’.
