“Premium story this year so formed. It is mainly, in my opinion, is the absence in the final biographical books. Books-biographies, and nonfiction, dedicated to some significant authors. Does this mean that we have lost interest in the past, to document? No, it doesn’t. And that means more. Documentary theme the theme of linking past and present, embodied in the art of fabric”, – said the Director of the State Museum of history of Russian literature named after V. I. Dahl, Dmitry Bak.
Note that the winners of the award in different years became Lyudmila Ulitskaya, Alexei Varlamov, Victor Pelevin and other well-known authors.
