Written by Sergey Nefedov
US Trade 6”x7.5”, hardcover, 288 pages, black and white printing, numerous illustrations.

It must be noted that, amongst other things, Sergey Nefedov is quite a famous artist. Yet his fame is akin to the fame of some Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, or if you like, Picasso or Modigliani. Despite his age, he remains a person who looks at the world through the eyes of a child.

Anyone who’s seen his paintings is unlikely to challenge this notion. The world within his paintings shines with a magical light of mystery and originality. This is a fluid, erratic, everchanging, but invariably festive world, the colors of which are the colors of childhood. Rather than plot, it is these colors, and their expression, that constitute the basis of his world.

The sample applies, in a sense, to the prose of Nefedov, collected within this book.
