KHYZHNIAK's book Liubar written in
Ukrainian, published in Kyiv, 1972 . US
copies held at Columbia University, Harvard
University, and University of Chicago. Appears
to be non-fiction about a man called "Liubar" who
is a fisherman and explores nature circa
mid-twentieth century after WWII. The origin of
his name and whether he is ever in the shtetl of
Lyubar is unclear from a cursory review of the
book. Not a Jewish story.
