From the series "Through the yards of Dovlatov"

Sergei Donatovich Dovlatov-Mechik (September 3, 1941 in Ufa, RSFSR, USSR – August 24, 1990 in New York City) was a Russian journalist and writer of Armenian origin. Internationally, he is one of the most popular Russian writers of the late 20th century.
1944 - 1972, 1975 -1978 he lived in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), Rubinstein Street, 23 and 22, respectively.
Sergei Dovlatov published twelve books in the United States and Europe during his twelve years as an immigrant. In the USSR, the writer was known from underground publication Samizdat and broadcasting organization Radio Liberty Channel since his works were not published in the Soviet Union. After his death and the beginning of Perestroika as a turning point in the Russian history, numerous collections of his short stories were also published in Russia.
