Journey to the 22 th trolley with Viktor Shenderovich


automatic translate

MOSCOW. There was a book of memoirs and essays Viktor Shenderovich with illustrations by Irene Litmanovich.


The phrase «God forbid you live in interesting times» is relevant to the Russian at all times. At the present - especially. The speed with which transformed the intellectual space to find an unprecedented ability to mimic, is staggering. And expect a dumb scene, universal fossilization, as in the final scene of Gogol’s «The Inspector General». And subsequent total reboot, when white will again be white, black and no one comes to mind to dress in bright clothes.

The book «22nd trolley and other sketches» - one of those that do not need to reboot. Collection of essays and memoirs of Victor Shenderovich Friends, teachers, good people still alive, or once lived in one time with him - Gorin, Vejle, Volodin, Polunin, Gerdt - created in collaboration with a great animator Irina Litmanovich. Fans of the movie, it is known for the painting «Handmade Clouds», «Helomskie customs», «Home Song».

The fabric nostalgic narratives intertwine city and years, a remarkable man gently gives way to another. Gerdt offering razznakomitsya signatory collective epistles against Sakharov. Painfully struggling with lack of freedom Volodin. Generously surrounding happiness every minute of life, Peter Weil. Traveling about the world in their mobile universe Polunin. And amazing watercolors, which appear and wears out in irrevocable far away «friends fine features.» Like a dream slips from consciousness or footage from unexpunged film from which the heart aches and lightens the soul.
