Entropia / Entropy

TRIO Publishing

(2011)

 

A story replete with fantastic elements, bizarre and hallucinatory images gets under the reader´s skin and questions his perception of the history and the present. It offers an impressive perspective on the consequences of the historical events that took place (not only) in Halič in the 20th century. The author wants the reader to reflect on many things, for instance, on whether a single act of mercy together with lifelong penance can wash the blood off a sinner´s hands and save his soul. Or whether the physical death is the final station where one is freed from all responsibility. Entropy is a journey to the peculiar world of the Ruthen-Lemko culture that exists independently of space and time. 


 

Carpathia

TRIO Publishing

(2011)

 

Carpathia takes the reader to a journey through the regions inhabited by the Rusyn ethnic group. Within the pages of this book, you will visit not only localities in Slovakia, but also the Lemko Region in Poland, Carpathian Ruthenia and the communities of Rusyn “emigrants” living in Bratislava and in the USA. You will also get a chance to meet Andrij Pysanskyj, Andy Warhol, Gotthard Heinrici and many other real or invented characters connected in some way with this geographical area.
