From childhood, we perceive the railway not only as something related to transport but as a great mystery that allows us to go on a journey, overcome a distance, join a large space, and gain new experiences. Love experiences, separations and meetings, the beating of broken hearts, or tender and trembling hugs on the platforms are inextricably linked with journeys and trips. The history of the country is made along the railway.

In Serhiy Zhadan's book, readers will find poems written over many years, directly or indirectly related to the railway. Here, the station square comes to dreams, people who look like snails sleep at stations and carry their own homes on their shoulders, and soldiers go to the East to defend the country and return to their relatives. To the quiet clatter of wheels and late horns, passengers count snow-covered hills, sleepy valleys, country buildings, and worried conductors wander the carriages and disperse dreams.

30 Poems on Love and the Railway is a poetic ode to travel, road, and love.
