This novel by Dmitrij Bykov is as always a bright experiment and a literary event. These are 3 independent stories, 3 different genres. A tragic comedy which happens to a poet, a student of the famous University of Philosophy, Literature and History in Moscow. A drama of a soviet journalist: love and infidelity, emigration and denunciation, detention and betrayal. A grotesque fairy tale in a style of a conspiracy theory about a crazy scientist who discovered the mechanisms of running the world through the language and text.
The centre of all the stories is the 20th century, anticipation of war, and people's fate in their approaching a new epoch.
The book has been included in the short nominee list of the Big Book prize 2018.
