- Femoral Neck might be serious, Sergey DAKHIN, Russie, 2015
“While parents were resting at Bulgaria, me and grandfather lived soul to soul and cooked whenever we wanted. I didn’t have a girlfriend, neither a job, nor studies and habitually ate a lot of butter. I was reading The Basics of Archeology by Avdusin, copying out poems from a self-made notebook. That was the best June in my life”.
