The arrival of Zahar Prilepin to Voronezh caused considerable interest. By the beginning of the meeting in the press hall of Voronezh Book Fair on Lenin Square there was no empty place.
The writer was relaxed and sometimes sharp in his judgments. Prilepin sympathized the residents of the city where Platonov and Bunin were born. To the opinion of the writer, they represent the opposite artistic tendencies. That is why the consciousness can be split in two.
Prilepin expressed his opinion on the most critical aspects of modern Russian life, told about his latest works and the works of modren writers.
