Ms Kostash is the author, among other books, of Prodigal Daughter: A Journey to Byzantium (2010), The Next Canada (2000) and, of special interest to adepts of Ukrainian Studies, Bloodlines: A Journey into Eastern Europe (1993), The Doomed Bridegroom (1998), which includes a remarkable personal response to the person and poetry of Vasyl’ Stus, and her early work on Ukrainian Canadians All of Baba’s Children (1977).
