Haven’t Read, but Condemn …

Miniremark on the new book of Nuzet Umerov

Readers of an average and the senior of generations, certainly, remember the ordinary phrase which has been taken out by the author of a note in heading. These words angry letters of the Soviet workers on pages of the newspaper «the Truth», condemning writers-dissidents, for published «behind a hillock» books, as a rule, began. It is clear that in those times the overwhelming weight of the Soviet people had no possibility to read V.Shalamov, A.Solzhenitsyn, V.Maksimov, A.Amalrik, V.Nekipelov, A.Galich’s product and many, many other things. And «indignation letters» were made in offices of special services more often.

But in this case to define the relation to the new book of Nuzet Umerov, really, there is no necessity to get acquainted with his maintenance. Personally to me was to see the book name on its cover enough: (!!!). After that any desire to open the book any more doesn’t remain.

To tell the truth, at me and in thoughts wasn’t to offend the remark of the aksakal of our literature. But, at heart the disappointment on myself nevertheless has flown that else in school days has thrown employment in fine art studio. Having skills of the artist, necessarily would represent Nuzet Abibullaevich pouring water from a huge watering can on the blade of the mill furiously milling history of our native land…
