This narrative by Svetlana Alexievich – the recent Nobel prize winner in literature, translated by Keith Gessen, tells about how an explosion destroys a reactor of the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant Station. As the government tries to cover up the catastrophe, people carry on with their lives as if nothing had happened, all the while inhaling radioactive waste hanging above their heads.
Voices from Chernobyl is a moving account of how the Chernobyl tragedy disturbed the tranquillity of a warm April night, and changed the lives of the people in nearby towns forever.
