Klym Polischuk was one of the tragically perished writers of the Executed Renaissance era, whose talent was brutally cut short in the Sandarmokh mass grave. His captivating novel «The Father of Hulyaipole», dedicated to the figure of Nestor Makhno, whom the author knew personally, became the first work in Ukrainian literature to portray this controversial yet majestic personality.
Polischuk's novels garnered high praise from prominent Ukrainian writers. Osyp Turiansky, captivated by the author's mastery, wrote: «Polischuk's language is very beautiful. One can say about it the same as about Kotsiubynsky, while reading whom a Dnipropetrovsk resident says that this is the pure language of Great Ukraine, while a Galician has the impression that they speak like this in Galicia too. This is the secret of a single literary language... This is the literary face of Klym Polischuk: an original psychologist, a powerful painter of the secret tremors of the human soul, a poet of struggle and faith in the sun».

«The Father of Hulyaipole» is not just a historical novel but a profound philosophical reflection on the tragedy of the Ukrainian people in one of the most dramatic periods of its history. It is a work that makes one think about the eternal questions of good and evil, life and death, loyalty and betrayal, love and hate.
