When short stories written by a young author appeared in a big Moscow publishing house they started their mythical way there and had a strange influence on every member of the publishing team and on anyone who reads at least one page. Four stories of the manuscript are four stories which happened to its readers. Realism, the absurd and thriller replace one another, reflecting Russian reality, showing feelings, emotions and yearnings of modern Russian people.
