«Andriy Lagovsky» is an autobiographical novel that became one of the pillars of Ukrainian modernism. This work broke the taboo on public discussion of sexual orientation and the human right to be oneself. The protagonist is an intellectual, a book lover, and a professor who constantly reflects on his own states, desires, and feelings. He tries to find his place in a traditional society that does not accept his otherness.
An important element of the plot is the protagonist's homosexual orientation. This is a story of duality and loneliness. He seeks love, but not among women, but among men. He strives for family happiness, believes in high ideals, which are destroyed under the pressure of society.

Lagovsky dooms himself to an ascetic life, but cannot resist the temptations. In the end, he remains too dependent on the burden of tradition, incapable of a decisive rebellion. However, he fights for the opportunity to «remain who he is».
«Andriy Lagovsky» is not just a novel about homosexuality. It is a deep psychological analysis of a personality that seeks itself within the rigid framework of social norms.
