SHORT MASTERPIECES FROM THE MASTER OF MODERN RUSSIAN PROSE

But later on you can’t help understanding that it is just totally different reality that rather lives according to its own laws. And when the deepest stings of your heart are touched you understand that it is frightening, captivating and addictive to follow the stories from this – another – reality.
