The December book is I Will Die in a Foreign Land: A Novel, by Kalani Pickhart.
This novel follows four people over the course of a volatile Ukrainian winter in 2014, as their lives are forever changed by the Euromaidan protests. Katya is a Ukrainian-American doctor stationed at a makeshift medical clinic; Misha is an engineer; Slava is a fiery young activist; and Aleksandr Ivanovich, a former KGB agent, climbs atop a burned-out police bus at Independence Square to play the piano. The author was selected as an inaugural 2022 New Voices Literary Fellow for the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference and has been the recipient of fellowships from the Virginia G. Piper Center and the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Intelligence for Eastern European and Eurasian Studies.

We are reading Ruth Ben-Ghiat’s Strongmen:From Mussolini to the Present, which “examines how illiberal leaders use corruption, violence, propaganda, and machismo to stay in power, and how resistance to them has unfolded over a century.” Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Professor of History and Italian Studies at New York University, “is a historian and commentator on fascism, authoritarian leaders, and propaganda — and the threats these present to democracies. An MSNBC Opinion Columnist and author or editor of six books, with over 100 op-eds and essays in CNN, The New Yorker, and The Washington Post, she brings historical perspective to her analyses of current events. Her insight into the authoritarian playbook has made her an expert source for television, radio, podcasts, and online events around the globe.” (From author’s website https://ruthbenghiat.com.)
Our January 9th book is The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy.
