About the Book
The winner of the 4th Annual 3-Day Novel Contest and its second published novel is sad, funny, eloquent and both full of tenderness for things lost and enthusiastic about what can be found.
The story of a Ukrainian family in post-war Winnipeg, Accordion Lessons is a novel of cultural and personal self-discovery–a wholly believable, affirmative recognition of the fact of rootedness. Serwylo knows his people, their histories, nostalgias, aspirations and frustrations, and especially their music, the polkas and ballads of the Ukraine.
