Marina Lewycka: tractors, black humour & success

British novelist Marina Lewycka is daughter of Ukranian refugees who was approaching her 60s when she got her first big break eleven years ago. Her debut novel A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian became a world wide hit and has been translated into around 30 languages. It was a very funny, but dark story about a gold-digging Ukrainian, who snares an elderly widower for his British passport.
