Notable Works

Neokonchennyĭ portret
The light of a distant star
One of the finest stories ever written. Translation is first rate. A tale of love found, lost and searched for in the setting of the great patriotic war and the time after. The human condition is woven into this story very well. Find it and read it. The title is very apt.
God zhizni
Ėto bylo v Leningrade
