Hello


Drawing by Natalia Mikhaylenko

Voice over by Elena Krovvidi 

Dmitry Birukov, a follower of Remark and Hemingway (as he introduces himself), describes everyday life in Russia with a nice retro feel.“Remark taught me technicalities, while Hemingway gave me the image of a writer” - explains Dmitry.

Journalist and editor Dmitry Biryukov was born in 1979 in Novosibirsk, Russia. His first publication was printed in 2004 in the Prolog online blog for young writers. In 2004 the author was long listed for the Debut award in the small prose category. In 2005 he won the award in the nomination “essays”. Dmitry's most noticeable novels are Uritsky Street and Hello which is presented in this podcast.
