Read full description of the books:



April 26th, 1986. Overnight, things fell apart in a quiet Ukrainian town. The steam generator of Reactor Four at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station malfunctioned during an experiment to produce electricity from residual energy, bringing on an explosion. The resulting blaze lasted several days, casting huge quantities of radioactivity a thousand meters up into the atmosphere. Over thirty six hours had passed before the locals were evacuated from the nearest settlement of Pripjat. In the weeks and months that followed, more than 67,000 people were relocated from their homes in affected areas.

This elegiac novel is the story of what came after. Contaminated food metallic water, poisonous rain, disfigured progeny, and the slow-dying bereaved that the dead left behind. Weddings were called off, babies aborted, crops burnt, home and hearth deserted. Even as the light went out of the lives of the people in Ukraine, radioactive showers travelled across borders in Europe. Told in the voices of the nuclear disaster's many victims, Voices from Chernobyl recounts how their bodies, lives and loves, realities and memories were distorted forever, and how the very air around them irrevocably changed.
