The Invisible Life of Ivan Isaenko

Sebastopol - Copperfield’s Debut Brews introduce readers to exciting new fiction writers at our favorite local brew pubs. And if you buy a book, the first draft's on us!
The Fault In Our Stars meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in this hilarious but heart-wrenching novel about a frighteningly smart disabled boy who finds love and hope in a Russian hospital. At 17 years old, Ivan Isaenko is a lifelong resident of the Mazyr Hospital for Gravely Ill Children in Belarus. Born severely deformed, yet mentally keen with a frighteningly sharp wit, strong intellect, and a voracious appetite for books, Ivan is forced to interact with the world through the vivid prism of his mind. For the most part, every day is exactly the same for Ivan—until 17-year-old Polina arrives at the hospital. At first, Ivan resents Polina; she steals his books, challenges his routine, and the nurses like her. But eventually he is drawn to her, and the two forge a romance that is both beautiful and tenuous. Hilarious and full of heart, Stambach’s unforgettable debut novel is a story about finding hope within the most desperate of circumstances.
