Denis Nushtaev
True Sadness

Philosophic, poetic and absolutely honest story about the future which is no different from ours. Except for one thing: people live on a secluded island surrounded by the expanse of a desert.


These people lead their ordinary lives and develop their civilization but they sometimes dream of learning what is beyond the sands and if they will be able to inhabit all the land. This world has its own philosophy, its own religion and politics but there stays that very true sadness which is the beginning and the end of any story.

The book continues the tradition of modernists and following Proust, the author tries to describe his own living mind, giving the example that simple displays of mind are much more interesting than the most sophisticated plots of reality. And the most sublime knowledge is nothing to the true and deeply personal sadness.
