Bloody Countess from Primorye and "pure Tarantino trash"
PRIMORSKY ANTISTRESS

"Firstly, I do not understand cities without the sea. In other cities of the sea I lack physically. I can not explain what it is - special sounds, seagulls, moist air, salt sea wind ... The sea is a powerful antidepressant, it is both to swim and to breathe and just watch, be inspired. I would quote Joseph Brodsky: "If it fell in the empire to be born, it is better to live in a remote province by the sea." In general, Vladivostok is the "South-East Asia" of Russia, we have an amazing nature, which is nowhere else in the world and a unique ecosystem. Our climate is very different from Siberian, from the climate of the Middle Strip. Summer comes a month earlier and leaves a month later. Taiga and vegetation are exotic, for example, there are no white Yesenin birches; I am always touched when I meet them in other parts of the country.

In Vladivostok, I live all my life, and I never had the desire to leave. My mother and brother lived on Sakhalin, and 8 years ago moved to the suburbs. I had the opportunity to sell an apartment here and buy there, and, in principle, it would be of equal value. Mom really wanted me to move, because the family is in different parts of the country. I promised to think to her, but I went there, yes, it's good, Moscow is near, but it's not Vladivostok! It's inexplicable, you know why you love the city. It's like a man you love, although you see all its shortcomings. I know perfectly well that we do not have parking lots, pedestrian crossings are not enough, we have a lot of stealing, how much money was laundered. I see all the flaws. But a hometown is a feeling of home. They say that this is a provincial complex, yes, so be it. And you know, at the insistence of my mother, my younger brother left, because the humid climate of the Far East did not suit her. He's been there for 8 for years, got married, he has a great apartment, has two children, but he does not go nostalgic for Vladivostok, because he was born here. Although he also traveled around the country, he lived, and he has something to compare with. "

"Vladivostok is a city of slender girls and women with strong legs and strong asses. He stands on the hills, and every day we run up and down stairs and mountains. Then I do not understand the level cities in the valley, on the plain. In my window you can see the sea, the hills, the forest, at home we stand serpentine, and I live on the hill. And when I come to a flat city, I'm surprised: you look out the window - and there's just another house and there is no review. Most Russian cities are two-dimensional, flat. And Vladivostok - voluminous, 3D, you can say. And when visitors say that it is difficult to walk around our hills, I answer that these are our natural simulators. What others consider to be difficulties - the same hills and humid climate - I consider a plus. We have a city of ever young women, because the normal humidity of 60 is 90%. We do not need uhodovaya cosmetics, the skin is so moisturized around the clock. But people with poor health, with diseases of the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal system, Vladivostok is not suitable.

Vladivostok is a city of "sailors, fogs, blue stones and beautiful b *****" © And if we even have girls with low social responsibility are beautiful, imagine how beautiful the other girls and women are! It is a city of strong, courageous, sporting, kind and generous peasants. And it is true. We have a lot of men. Because Vladivostok is a city of noble professions, a city of sailors and military. "

"REALIZE THE SILENCE"

"In Vladik my friends from Astrakhan and Moscow suburbs shocked the number of cars and their quality. When I drove through the cities of the Volga region, giggled, and a friend asked: "What are you rzhe?". She could not understand. And I watched how many domestic cars. Not that it's patronizing, but it's like getting into the past. And when she came to us, then I understood, and I was surprised at the huge number of interesting cars that now began to appear everywhere, but not in such quantity. Visitors are surprised at the pace of traffic, the pace of life, that we have the same traffic jams as in Moscow, so many people and cars.

Vladivostok is a city where "Lada" or "Moskvich" on the road cause astonishment and long attentive views. Because we do not understand on what basis it drives. Yes, our cars are from Japan. Yes, for the most part used. Yes, with the right wheel more often. But they do not break! In my family cars for about 20 years. Lot. Good ones. Expensive. Not a single one broke. And Russian tins cannot compare with them. Who is jealous - envy in silence.

And more: for 2016 year, the first place in terms of the number of cars per capita is occupied not by Primorsky, but by the Kamchatka Territory. Yes, there are problems in Vladivostok, they are full. But they are the same as in the whole of Russia! And only one difference: the advantages that exist in Vladivostok, in the whole of Russia - no. This is a special city, but it's rather difficult to live in it. Visitors are also shocked by the prices. But this is not only in Vladivostok, it is the trouble of the Far East as a whole. I can compare with the cities in the central part of Russia, so as not to lie, for some products there prices are lower by half. When I come to the bazaar in Astrakhan, in Volgograd, my friends live there, I'm directly touched, almost to tears, it's necessary! But the fact is that there are two times less salaries. "

RUSSIAN BORDER

"Vladivostok is a" Russian abroad ". The same as Peter and Kaliningrad. This is the gateway to Asia, it is trade, export and import, it's an Asian business. That is why the crisis has least touched Vladivostok. But even today some believe that Vladivostok is not in Asia, it turns out, but in Europe. Or not in it. Perhaps on Mars. Or in parallel reality. The word "Asia" of people generally frightens, yes. "In Russia, the only mention of Asia is on the index near Yekaterinburg, on the Siberian tract." Geographically Vladivostok is the Far East "©. Do you understand what is the matter? If you follow the signs near Yekaterinburg, then it is understandable. Vladivostok is not Asia. This is the Far East. And where is the Far East? In the Far East. God forbid, not in Asia, the horror of which, God forgive me, it's not solid. And you say: right-hand drive vehicles, sea, shrimp.

Guests of the city are also very surprised by the large number of Chinese, Japanese and Korean signage, especially in the center of Vladivostok. I was not in Kaliningrad, but they say they have a similar story, only the signs are already Western. We have a huge number of Asians on the streets, Japanese, Chinese, it is from South-East Asia, all this in the aggregate gives rise to a slightly foreign image, unless, of course, we look into the sleeping areas.
Vladivostok is a developing city. A city where on weekends or in the evenings it is difficult to find a free place in a restaurant or cafe. Although we have them - on every corner. Because in Vladivostok people have loot. Vladivostok is the only city in Russia where, during the riots, the police refused to go against their own people. People took off their epaulets, they refused positions. Because - the Far East.

We have a multinational city. Russians, Ukrainians, Byelorussians, Armenians, Chechens, Azerbaijanis, Chinese, Koreans, Vietnamese and all other peoples. A natsiki do not take root - they do not know who to beat. One of these days left in the morning to deduce or remove nosomotov (dogs - a comment.East Russia) and has seen two dark-skinned. Since morning. In the sleeping area. They danced under their rap and waited for the sports club to open in our house. This is Vladivostok! Our slang, for example, the words "Zusman", "Kuksi" and "Milkis," are clear only to us. "

VLADIVOSTOK IN TRILLERS AND DETECTIVES

Again Vladivostok, corpses and ghouls. The roots of mysterious disappearances and murders go back to the deep past, lost in the bloody legend of Erzberta Bathory. Receiving the task to deal with what is happening, Ivan Tarkov does not suspect what bloody disassembly he will be involved in ...

Sensations from reading can be expressed in three words: the modern storyline is "purely Tarantino trash." It's also tough, bright, dynamic and with black humor "- from reviews of Diana Udovichenko's book" The Refraction Effect "(2013) on the site www.labirint.ru

“In Vladivostok, a series of mysterious murders are taking place, where bloodless bodies of young beautiful women with a torn throat are found in doorways and in dumps. Among the dead is the bride Sergei Kruglov. A former policeman, frustrated by the helplessness of his colleagues, takes up his own investigation, but strange types are beginning to pursue him and his sister Dasha ...

In parallel with this detective plot, written out with the knowledge of the police kitchen, a retrospective storyline unfolds, narrating about the centuries-old history of the vampire sort of affairs of Torre.

Diana Udovichenko masterfully describes Vladivostok, the specifics of the port city and its secret, criminal life. Banks, universities, nightclubs and police stations are all under the watchful eye of vampire clans ...

This novel - an attempt to comprehend the phenomenon of the popularity of vampire sagas, make fun of them and bring to life the young fans of this kind of literature "- from reviews of the book" The distortion effect "(2011) on the site www.labirint.ru

"Indeed, according to the Svetlanskaya and Okeansky avenue -" City "of Vladivostok - a continuous flow of luxury" Lexus ", solid" landcrackers ", predatory sports" lancers "and" Celik ". In expensive cars, in the driver's seat or next door, there were beautiful girls. The same beauties, no worse, filled the pavement paved with cobblestones, hurrying to offices, shops, universities ...
A dank wind blew from the strait, covered the surface of the sea with tiny chills, moved the overflowing bushes around the road. Stars shone in the clear cold sky with a scattering of tiny ice floes. The red light of the lighthouse was flashing, throwing a wavy pink path onto the water. Somehow I could not believe that this place is part of a big noisy city. Here it was empty, deserted, and it seemed that this cape and this sea under the high sky were endless and you could drive along a rough road for a long, long time, but nothing around would change. The cozy light from the windows of distant cottages only emphasized the feeling of being alone. ” - from the book "The distortion effect", 2011

"I started with fantasy, then I got bored somehow, I switched to a mystical detective. Now I write mysticism, postmodernism, a thriller "- the author shares. "My books" The effect of refraction "and" The distortion effect "are devoted to Vladivostok and the action takes place on its streets. These are mystical detectives. Very many readers who from the Central Russia, Moscow and St. Petersburg paid attention to these two books, because Vladivostok, our streets, girls, cars, hills and the sea are described very well and kindly there. People wrote that the books were interested in exactly the detailed description of Vladivostok.

In my books, I wrote off several female characters from myself. For example, in the book "The effect of refraction," which is about Vladivostok, where the main character is the bloody countess of Erbieta Bathory (Hungarian countess of the gens Batory, entered into Guinness Book of Records as the woman who committed the largest number of murders, although the exact number of its victims is unknown - East Russia). I was acquainted in the middle of 90 with one priest, that's what I prescribed. Father was Orthodox, he was riding a motorcycle, he had a bandana, it was a young, handsome, tall brunette. And to write off from other people, basically, you know, no, more fictional characters.
Because my characters are being killed. In addition, there is such a method - literary killership. Someone's enemy, the writer hates him, prescribes it in the book and kills. Such a kind wish. I was killed two times. I do not do this, and it would be uncomfortable for me to kill heroes written off from friends.

Not the fact that all my books can be bought in Primorye. When the novel only comes out, it is imported, and several months it can be found on the shelves. But then the shops, as a rule, do not buy, or buy only the top authors, who go on a constant flow, for example, Dontsov or Lukyanenko. But you can always come to the bookstore and ask for an order. Or buy in electronic form. Paper more and more goes to the category of aesthetic, collectible, amateur. It takes up a lot of space, it costs a little, it's not always and not everywhere you can buy. And the trade in electronic texts is the future. I trade on the Internet, do not compare while with the fees from the paper, but people take. Each author, I believe, should support such stores, this is a good fight against piracy, whenYou offer electronic texts that are convenient to buy and for little money.



My last book, which I am currently writing, I do not even know which publishing house will take it for it, I will offer it in everything. If in a nutshell - it's a rethinking of the tales of the Brothers Grimm and of European fairy tales in general. There's a lot of blood, this post is a modern mystical thriller, a detective, and maniacs are still written in there. "

AND YOURSELF DO NOT KNOW13000132_1702838559964622_7526244333564183282_n.jpg

"In Vladivostok I do not have a lot of readers. We sell books all over Russia, but the main ones are concentrated in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Still the middle band of Russia, Nizhny Novgorod, there are good sales there.

There are fans in other cities, here is one man who sent a nice phone as a gift, dear. On 8 March and birthday, flowers, cakes are constantly sent. Now the girl-reader has sent handmade jewelry. There are many readers in Russia, as they say, I am widely known to a narrow circle.

From the coastal colleagues on the pen, you can mention Nikolai Poberezhnik, he lives in Fokino, writes good books, a fantastic action film. There is Anna Darkness, she published several books in the Alpha-book and very successfully. This is a fantasy for a young audience. There is Alexander Khristova, she published one or two books, there is Ilya Cho, but he, in my opinion, has already moved. There is Vasyl Avchenko, I did not read it, but his books did a lot of noise. And I do not communicate with poets, I'm afraid of them.

Not the fact that all my books can be bought in Primorye. When the novel only comes out, it is imported, and several months it can be found on the shelves. But then the shops, as a rule, do not buy, or buy only the top authors, who go on a constant flow, for example, Dontsov or Lukyanenko. But you can always come to the bookstore and ask for an order.

"DO NOT LIE TO THE MEN'S GENRE"
Untitled-1.jpg

"My novels are addressed more to men. Somehow a few years ago I conducted a survey and found out: 70% of my readership is male from 20 to 40-50 years old and older. We have individual women authors in Russia who write to a male audience. In entertainment literature this issue is very acute and it, you know, is twofold. Gender stereotypes are very strong, and I had cases when publishers said - go to women's novels, you are a woman! Sometimes, readers start to reproach, if something did not like it, "this is because the woman wrote."

Some believe that the author of my books - muzhik under the female surname. This is my favorite, because I can not imagine such a masochist who creates difficulties for himself and writes bloody thrillers under a female pseudonym. And one thing I remember forever. I received a letter on the soap and it says "do not go into the male genre, bitch!".

I do not like forbidden methods, but when opponents in a dispute show me a climax or a pregnancy, I respond symmetrically to this, that is, not worth it. I answer the full version, with a mat, and it works. On the one hand, there are all these chauvinist stereotypes, and on the other, we actually have up to 90% of female authors who are engaged in a woman's novel, and this number of women authors creates stereotypes. Not that they themselves are to blame, probably the majority of women are really more interested in feelings, love. And this is normal. I sincerely do not care about all this romance. I am an egocentric person, I am only interested in my own feelings and feelings of close people, and reading about the fact that someone loves me is of special interest to me. I like to read mysticism, detectives, that I like to read, then I write. Stephen King is my idol of the years with 15-ti. Of the modern, Martin, but I'm very offended by him, because he does not write the book. He is in some transparent balls running around, saving wolves, anything, just not to finish the book. Still very much I love Bulgakov and his "Masters and Margarita". From the first letters I had a cultural shock, I was amazed how you can write. And so many good authors. And - I listen to the metal.

My husband treats my work with understanding, he does not mind. He has my PI. And the son is generally my first reader, always, when I finish the book, he reads it first. He gives a lot of sensible advice, and acts, you know, as a representative of a young, literate and well-read audience. I listen to him. And we also wrote three co-authorships with him, the cycle "Mirrors of Fate". There are two heroes - orchanka and elf, he wrote on behalf of the guy, I'm on behalf of the girl. The cycle turned out to be a good one, but it relates more to a teenage novel. Considering that we wrote with my son, there are no revelations, no sex. This book is about friendship, about adventures. The trilogy turned out to be kind and it can be freely given to teenagers ".

INSTEAD OF PETITIONS115647.jpg

"A new note - 2000, the very fact, like! Yes, I understand that there, they say, even Sakhalin has turned into a peninsula, it's very funny and a madhouse, of course. I understand Sakhalin, I would be offended at their place.

Running from Vladivostok, I would not call weaklings. Everyone chooses where he is comfortable, the city that he loves. Many people leave for the Krasnodar Territory, someone leaves abroad, maybe they are better there and they are more demanded as specialists there. I wish them luck and happiness. I am a patriot of my city, but not so much as to demand that all of them be chained to sit here. Migration of the population is normal. In addition, I would not say that Vladivostok is intensively leaving and our city is becoming weaker, rather, on the contrary. And although I'm not an enthusiastic optimist, but I see improvements in recent years. The bridges were built, interchanges, an incineration plant. Primorye is basically not a depressive region, and the Far East in general. Maybe it's about small towns, where they come from, but we have a developing region, whether it's bad whether it's good, how it develops, what kind of kickbacks we have - that's another question. I can not say that we have a high level of unemployment, but there is a crisis in the country. As far as I know, people normally find work, and do not say that professionals are cleaning men or janitors. We have jobs, we have businesses, we have a growing city. Look how many new buildings we have, because they buy apartments! Of course, we can point to a number of shortcomings in this development, but how we can and do develop. And this is a city where you will not be left without help.
Because the climate and the proximity of the sea do not have to indifference. We know that apart from ourselves - no one ...

But Vladivostok as a port city is not only bridges, it's trash, some night hangouts, a hangover, it's all in the style of Vladivostok. It's a city of people with excellent black humor. And when Zadornov tried to fuck us, and his performance was probably ordered to lower the cars with the right wheel to support the half-dead domestic auto industry, we did not begin to write petitions. Just released a large line of toilet paper with portraits of Zadornov. I hope for the same ruler with portraits of one great blogger, who recently was Haitil Vladivostok. Because we wanted to wipe ourselves with those who spit in us. "
