Alexey Varlamov shared his thoughts about Platonov's life and heritage with Voronezh readers. He is the author of the last biographical book - "Andrey Platonov" published this year in Moscow. "I think Platonov is the most significant writer of the 20th century. His genius - not a gift, but a diagnosis that leads to hard consequences for the writer. I avoided writing about Platonov for a long time because I deeply love his work. There are many good scientific books about Platonov, but they cover different periods of his life, set out different interpretations of his personality, including "Platonov, a rebel", "Platonov in search of happiness, the so-called "split Platonov". I wanted to show some integrity."
