refreshers for TRILOGY and NOTES with Noir sur Blanc/ France
Oleg Pavlov’s famous trilogy TALES FROM THE LAST DAYS is set at the end of the era of the Soviet Union, but they do paint a fundamental picture of the situation in the Russian army, a situation that has scarcely improved since the time of the Soviet Union as one can see after one year war against Ukraine.
Oleg Pavlov’s NOTES OF A HOSPITAL RECEPTIONIST is the essence of the writer’s personal experiences from the times he has been working as a receptionist in a Moscow hospital, between 1994 and 1997. Published as a book nearly sixteen years later, this diary became a lyrical epic masterpiece, earning recognition and praise of both critics and readers. The book was awarded the Solzhenitsyn Prize.
Pavlov has passed away in 2018.
