The publisher of our book about Ukraine saw my photo that I posted earlier today and that I took in (as opposed to on) the campus toilet. He says it’s a lot better than my carefully posed professional photo and he’s taking it for the book cover and promotional materials.
The title has the word “Kharkiv” in it and the cover has a photo of Kharkiv. Before the war, of course. I don’t know how I’m even going to present the book now, knowing what happened to all the beautiful landmarks. The book is an ode to the city, its beauty, its people, and its history. It’s about to go to print.
