About the Author

Lyubov Makarovna Sirota is a poet, publicist, and playwright, who was born in 1956 in the city of Irtyshesk (Pavlodar oblast) in Kazakhstan. Her childhood and youth were spent in Frunze (today Bishkek), the capital of Kirgizia, where she was a member of the city’s literary association Gornye Zori (“mountain dawns”) and her first poems were published in a Kirgiz periodical. In 1975 Sirota and her parents moved to their ancient homeland, Ukraine, where she graduated from the Faculty of Russian Philology at Dnepropetrovsk State University. She directed the literary associations Poisk (“quest”) in the city of Komsomolsk (Poltava oblast) and, from 1983, “Prometheus” at the Energetik Palace of Culture in Pripyat. After the Chernobyl catastrophe and the evacuation from Pripyat, Sirota has lived in Kiev where she worked as an editor at the Alexander Dovzhenko Film Studio until 1992. The author’s poems, articles, and essays have been published in anthologies, as well as in many journals and newspapers of the former Soviet Union and Ukraine. After her collection of poetry, Nosha (“the burden”), and Rollan Sergienko’s film Porog (“the threshold”) came out, her poems became well-known all over the world. She was the coauthor and a leading character in the film. Sirota’s works have been translated into English, German, Polish, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and other languages. Thanks to Professor Paul Brians, Washington State University, her poems (in English translation by Elisavietta Ritchie and Leonid Levin) have been heard on the U.S. national radio program Terra Infirma, and were published in the following collections: Life on the Line: Selections on Words and Healing; Perspectives from the Past; A Fierce Brightness: Twenty-Five Years of Women’s Poetry; and Perspectives on Modern World History: Chernobyl. Sirota’s poetry has also appeared in Canadian and American journals, including Calyx, Zhinochii Svit, Promin, The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), The New York Quarterly, WISE, The Russell Record Magazine, The Modern Review, and In Our Own Words.
