The memoir highlights the unusual plight of a Russian poet submerged into non-Russian milieu of a lofty but alien idealism. The protagonist chooses both a pattern of behaviour which is both unexpected and unique. The book rests on Kolkers archive files including his correspondence with his fellow Russian writers in the Western Europe and the USA.
