  Ildar Abuziarov

 

 

Ildar Abuziarov was born in the city of Gorky (now Nizhny Novgorod). He is the author of more than 20 publications in major literary journals and three books of prose (“HUSH”, “Kurban-Roman” and “The Autumn of Djinns”). His works have been translated into German, Czech, and Swedish. He is a member of the Forum of Young Writers in Lipki and writes for “The Literary Express”. His stories “A Moor” and “The Post” were short-listed for the Yury Kazakov Prize.

 

 

Abuziarov’s prose is like a painting. The idea sets the theme for the picture, then rolls itself up into the secret at the bottom of the text. The emphasis is transformed from the meaning to the implementation. The author thoroughly joins the motifs, keeping an eye out to ensure that there are no visible seams in the ornamentation. He does not allow any fragment to deviate from the given subject.
 

Valeriya Pustovaya, critic

 

 

 

Abuziarov has freed himself from some of the viscosity that had been inherent in his style, and has written refined poetical stories. Now his works are characterized by an amazing combination of dramatic qualities, tenderness, humour and worldly clowning.
 

Eugenia Shtglova, critic

 

 

 

The combination of Poland and Islam creates a subtle dissonance of texture in itself. In addition, all the names, gestures and tingles in “Kurban-Roman” are chosen so precisely by Abuziarov that an ordinary melodrama is suffused with stuporous moiré beauty before our very eyes.
 

Kirill Ankudinov, critic
