Staff Pick: Michelle on Baba Dunja's Last Love by Alina Bronksy


Translated from German by Tim Mohr

Octogenarian Baba Dunja returns to live out her final days in her beloved home, a stone’s throw away from the Chernobyl dead zone. Bringing with her a ragtag group of her former neighbours, they make a life for themselves in their village. With the town to themselves and strangely misshapen forest fruit to spare, they have pretty much everything they need and happily while away the days in their idyllic little settlement.

But that all changes when a stranger arrives with a little girl, and their home is threatened with annihilation again.
