A night and a day away from Moscow by express train, or a day and a night away from the Black Sea by a slow passenger train, the city of Zaporozhye inextricably see-saws between the south and the north, the sublime and the surreal, and the ancient and modern worlds. Shortlisted for the Tibor Jones Pageturner Prize, Svetlana Lavochkina’s Zap is a multi-generational burlesque family saga whose characters form dynasties embroiled in the polyphonic tragicomedy of relationships and unfulfilled dreams.
