Novel about the love affair of two illegal refugees


Dear friends from the MuseumQuartier!

Let me to thank you for giving me the great opportunity to visit one of the most amazing cities in Europe.

In two months spent at quartier21/MQ like in my home, I have devoted all my free time for literature. Believe me – it’s a rare possibility in moldavians circumstances.   

I have managed to write - from February to April - thirty short stories.

Some of them are published in Russian literary journals.


Also thanks to my residency I have had time to make all necessary corrections into my novel publishing this year in the United States  

and France

But the ability / opportunity to do literature wasn’t the only thing I’ve received in this voyage. I am happy to spend some time in Vienna not as a tourist, but as a resident of this incredible city. Vienna for me now isn’t only the capital of Austria, but the center of the vast espace - which isn’t longer on the map - but which attracts the people from all over the world.

Dear friends. I am grateful also to you for your tact and respect. I was like at home in terms of comfort and calmness.
