Guys,

For the purpose of understanding the Russian literature culture, I seriously recommend reading Venedikt Erofeev's poema Moscow to the End of the Line (Rus.: Moskva-Petushki). Yes, I could see the survivor's manners in the main character. He is an alcoholic and also quite an intelligent man.

Best wishes,

Alexey

Alexey,

Thanks for this. I will look for it and have a go. I have quite a few Russian colleagues, mainly in Moscow and SPB, but usually I only see them here in W. Europe. So it would be interesting to read something about the Russian literary cultural scene.

Much love,
Larry
