A Few Streets More to Kensington
by Alex Sheremet
As a child, Artem escaped the Chernobyl disaster in the hope of finding solid ground. As an adult, he must now unearth it, and learn to disentangle his past from the trick of memory we must all succumb to. In this remembrance—real or imagined?—he will befriend hoodlums, indulge the sage advice of a local pimp, and betray and face betrayals before settling on his true goal: to become an artist.
