A month and a half before the final verdict, one of the most likely candidates for the victory is called the writer Anna Kozlov.

The diagnosis of «schizophrenia» condemns the heroes of the novel «F20» to unsuccessful attempts to integrate into the surrounding reality. They are given the role of original rogue people without any hope for coherent perspectives and worthy help. Surviving, the characters rely only on themselves.

Held and not very much, fans of shocking and recluses, talented but misunderstood artists and writers, geniuses and charlatans. «Homeland» Elena Dolgopyts - also one of the favorites of the current «National Baptist».
A collection of subtle, philosophical, nostalgic stories «Homeland» - a pleasant for many acquaintance with a talented author, long awaited recognition.
