Sophia Andrukhovych

Sophia Andrukhovych is a Ukrainian writer and translator. She was born in 1982 in Ivano-Frankivsk, formerly known as Stanislav. One of the cultural centers of western Ukraine, the city is known for what has been termed the “Stanislav phenomenon” because of the curious fact that this rather small town is home to an unusually large concentration of postmodern writers. She has authored six books of prose to date: Milena’s Summer (2002), Old People (2003), Wives of Their Husbands (2005), Salmon (2007), Felix Austria (2014) and Amadoka (2020). Felix Austria was awarded the BBC Book of the Year prize (2014), Joseph Conrad Korzeniowski Literary Prize (2015), The Visegrad Eastern Partnership Award project (2017).

She is also an author of the book for children Hen Constellation (2015). 

Her works have been translated into English, Polish, German, Czech, French, Hungarian and Serbian. She is also an author of essays and a translator. She lives in Kyiv.
