Among them was Volodymyr Fedorin’s book “Goodbye, Empire. Conversations with Kakha Bendukidze” as an attempt to systematize the views of an outstanding Georgian reformer who worked closely with Ukraine during the last months of his life.
Also, we received the works of Nobel Prize winners including Svitlana Aleksievych, Malala Yusufzai and Christina Le; the best novel of the decade of the Laureate of the International Literary Competition “The Coronation of the Word” Volodymyr Lys “Jacob’s Century”; the Book of the year according to Financial Times “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” by Thomas Piketty and many others.
