Pidmohylny is a representative of Executed Renaissance who was killed by Stalin's totalitarian regime at the age of 33. All Ukrainian authors before Pidmohylny focused on the Ukrainian village and problem of villagers, but he was first who wrote a novel about urbanistic issues. In this book he wrote about Kyiv and its inhabitants, urban life those times, movement, dynamics, landscapes. Of course, many things have changed, Kyiv is depicted from 100 of years ago, but some things are still the same. He described the the Ukrainian peasant youth which was moving to the capital to conquer it. I think it still the same today.
It's a classic by Bulgakov. He was born, raised and grew up in Kyiv and started to write his major work The White Guard in Kyiv at Andriyivskyy Descent 13 (Podil) where the museum of Bulgakov is located now. In this house he also wrote The Days of the Turbins and now you can come to this museum and find yourself supposedly in the same era that Bulgakov described.
