About the book
Extraordinary life of Ukraine's defiant leader
Volodymyr Zelensky has won praise across the world for his leadership after Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Few outside of Ukraine know the twists and turns of his life before he was elected president. At the age of 20, the Jewish boy from the provincial town of Kryvyi Rih was a star of the stage. At 30, the comedian and actor headed a multimillion-dollar company. At 40, in the hit series Servant of the People, Zelensky played the Ukrainian president he aspired to be: an outsider who takes on his country’s corrupt political and business elite. ‘If I am elected, they will first sling mud at me,’ said Zelensky in 2018, six days before he announced his candidacy, ‘then they will learn to respect me, and finally cry when I leave.’
In Zelensky, Steven Derix describes the impressive life story of an actor who played a president on TV before being thrust into the role of real-life wartime leader.
