Sasha Sokolov — international man of mystery. Even his
the father, deeply secret GRU agent named Davy, who on the instructions of Beria
extracted the secrets of the nuclear bomb, known more than his son, the famous
Russian writer.

Why merciless in their formulations Vladimir Nabokov,
calling the Nobel laureate Bunin as a “skinny old turtle and vulgar”, and “Nobel”
Pasternak’s novel “Doctor Zhivago” — a miserable clumsy thing, why about it
about the unknown Sasha Sokolov, Vladimir Nabokov writes: tragic, charming
and trogatelnaya book — “School for fools”. And Joseph Brodsky, barely hearing
the first page, say the publishers: “we Need to print!”.

The main novel by Sasha Sokolov “School for fools” was called
Russian “the catcher in the rye”, and the Sasha exalted to “Russian
Joyce”. For the reading public Sokolov – the only weapon that can give
the heat became so popular Sergei Dovlatov. In 1975, Sasha Sokolov
gone from the Soviet Union, has published three novels — not gone, not closed
world. Many of his fans believe that his long dead.

The authors of the film — Anton Zhelnov Nikolay Kartozia and not just
found out that the great Russian writer alive, they found out that he (and his
father), all these years, leads an interesting double life. They looked for him in different
countries and discovered. And writer for the first time agreed to speak. The conversation
continued for ten days. The writer talked about life, simultaneously revealing the secrets
secret biographies — and his family.

“For me, “School for
fools” is one of the most grandioznyj poeticheskih books written in Russian, — says Nikolay Kartozia. — I misspoke. It’s not prose. This poezia.
His “stream of consciousness” Alexander so powerfully broke into Russian
the literature that now this thread is a national treasure, as the South and
Northern threads. And most importantly — this book explains to me why I am. It is
a Declaration of love to one of my creators.”
