Tania Skarynkina, poet and essayist, was born in 1969 in Smarhon, Belarus. This book of literary essays was published in 2015 and includes recollections of her childhood in Smarhon interwoven with thoughts on poets, philosophers and world literature as a whole.  Fresh and engaging, it is a Window into Another Life.

Jim Dingley, who has a lifetime’s experience of translating Belarusian into English, is currently working on this project with Scotland Street Press.

This translation is published by arrangement with Lohvinau publishing (Minsk, Belarus) and with Books from Belarus Project’s assistance.
