Theodore (Fedir) Odrach, born Sholomitskyi (1912 - 1964) was a Ukrainian and Polesian author and poet. Born in Belarus, he spent time as a child in a reform school for boys in Vilnius and later graduated from Vilnius University. Feeing the Soviet invasion of the city, he returned to Belarus, later to be imprisoned by the Soviets and chased, first to Ukraine (where he changed his name from Sholomitskyi to Odrach, in order to hide), then Slovakia, Germany, England, and finally - Toronto. In Canada he wrote numerous novels, short stories, and articles for various emigre journals, including "Wave of Terror," which was posthumously translated into English by his daughter. Most of his works spoke of interwar and wartime Polisia, including the current one, "On the Road," which was his very first novel. Very good .
