Edition 2014

Laureate 2014
Serhiy Jadan

Vorochylovhrad, Folio, 2010

The 2014 Jan Michalski prize for literature was awarded to a young Ukrainian author, Serhiy Jadan. His first novel, translated into French under the title La route du Donbass (Vorochylovhrad), offers an offbeat epic of post-Soviet rootlessness.


The winner of the Jan Michalski Prize 2014, Serhiy Jadan receives an award of CHF 50,000.00 and a photographic work by Maurice Schobinger that has been chosen for him: Metalurg Kombinat Chelyabinsk.
