Yevhen Hutsalo (14 January 1937 – 4 July 1995 ) was a Ukrainian writer and journalist.


Hutsalo was born in Staryi Zhyvotiv, Vinnytsia oblast. He graduated from the Nizhyn Pedagogical Institute in 1959, and was first published in 1960.[1] During the 1960s, Hutsalo was considered one of the "shestydesyatnyky" (the sixtiers), or those who were opposed to the oppressive communist regime.[2] However, later on he chose to be an official writer rather than one opposed to the regime.[1]

He published over 25 novella and short-story collections (several of them for children), a trilogy of novels, and three poetry collections. His works are noted for their detail, lyrical descriptions of nature, psychological portraits, and abundant use of the rural vernacular.[1]

In 1985 Hutsalo was awarded the Shevchenko Prize and in 1994 the Antonovych prize.

In (Ukraine's capital) Kyiv a lane dedicated to Field Marshal of the Russian Empire Mikhail Kutuzov was renamed after Yevhen Hutsalo in 2016.[3]
