A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian by Marina Lewycka
December 17 - 18, 324 pages
A friend saw this book and asked me what it was about. I assured her that it was very funny, and then explained the storyline. She was a bit disappointed, it didn't sound very funny. But it is. It is so bizarre. But very good. It is a great read. So easy to just gobble it up in a few sittings.
It's quirky and so different. I want to read some more novels by Lewycka. They all have great covers, too.
Oh, and it's not actually a short history of tractors in Ukrainian. But it does briefly touch on their history. It's surprisingly interesting. Nothing on the novel's characters and their crazy relationships with each other, though.
