Thanks for reading it. Yes, more's on the way, step by step.

it won't happen soon anyway, promise )) but now i want to do it, really. you'll be the first to know.


message 5: by Jen

Jen No, no obligatory driving allowed. Contrary to my American heritage, I can wait. Besides, if you translate this I will feel driven to do something in return, and then all that endless driving might result in road rage.

More pleasure, less work,

well, now it looks like i drove myself into a commitment of sorts to translate it )) i'll ask Lora if i may, and as soon as i'm free of my current work obligations, i'll try my best. it will be fun.


message 3: by Jen

Jen "A Little Fucking Something" sounds like something I would like. The second you mentioned sounds almost as good for me too. I need to make a shelf for translations I am going to wait for.


message 2: by Max

Max Nemtsov oh yes, Lora Beloivan. she's a wonderful creature. she's an old friend of mine, she lives near my home town of Vladivostok and almost all her time dedicates to saving seals from oil in the sea and other mishaps, painting, and writing.

her first book ("A Little Fucking Something") is partly a kind of short surrealistic fictions, with, for example, dead Russian classics coming back to life and visiting Vladivostok only to complicate her life, and partly true stories from her career in Russian merchant marine. it's very funny (in a good sense).

her second one ("The Fifty First Winter of Nathaniel Forkin") is a poetic masterpiece, very stylishly illustrated and published. a series of hilarious and terrifying monologues of a village alcoholic and self-styled sage about everything on earth. hope i'll be able to translate some of her work into english some day.


message 1: by Jen

Jen Lora Beloivan sounds fascinating- what little I can find out in English. How would you describe her writing? I gather that you like her poetry? One particular book cover looks interesting, and the drawings inside.
