A dedicated editor-in-chief of “Literary newspaper” Polyakov the book of Olga Arikova entitled “the Last Soviet writer”, the diarist characterizes the author of “Kolyma tales” Shalamov as “slightly tronuvshegosya mind”. This feature, Facebook cited in a literary critic Sergey Chuprinina, aroused the indignation of the literary community.
“In Motley hall (the Central house of writers — ed.) — says the Poles in the book, you can listen to Moody Kolyma tales is a bit tronuvshegosya mind Shalamov, he loved to join the company of youth.”
Also the chief editor of “Literary Gazette” says that there, in Motley hall TSDL, could “easily tapped Gregory Pozhenyana or ask advice from Mezhirov (Soviet poets — ed.) who, with the cue at the ready, came down from the billiard room to the bar — slam the glass”.
In the comments of the Facebook users questioned the approval Polyakova as Shalamov, and about the architecture of WSC: they noted that the billiard room may only be going up, not down in the colorful room.
In addition, it was noted that Shalamov not only appeared in a bright room, but not read his works first listeners.
Most succinctly expressed a common reaction Viktor Shenderovich, who wrote “my God. If you are. Well, please, move your eyes sharpness”.
