"The specific world of 1960-70-80's novels contains nuclei of anomaly, curiosity and specificity that are unrepeatable in the history of a literature. An entire gallery of 'wax figures' – children and teenagers, workers and intellectuals, aristocrats and communist party activists, seductive or disdained women – teems in these novels. Likewise, an entire set of values: recognized and accepted love, or subversive and doomed love, the career and the upstart, culture, the past and history, morals, pudency, conventions and prejudice."
