“…The Moscow train pulls into Ulyanovsk early in the morning. These days the city welcomes you with bustling streets and squares, the courtyards and guardians the scarlet shade of leaves that have not yet fallen, the mirrored vitrines of shops, and a myriad of new buildings. If there’s anything particularly characteristic of Ulya­novsk’s new look, it is the construction cranes and scaffolding.” Thus begins an article by special correspondent Ivan Vasiliev in the November 20, 1967, issue of the journal Sovetskie Profsoyuzy (“Soviet Professional Unions”). This issue was published on the eve of the 50th anniversary of the October Revolution, which was widely celebrated across the country. The choice of the city was hardly incidental; over the next three years, the provincial town of Ulyanovsk, taking up the banner of “the Homeland of the Leader of World Revolution Must Live Up to Its Status,” would undergo a total transformation, finishing just in time for April 1970, the 100th anniversary of the birth of Vladimir Lenin. 

1962. Nikolay Kozakov Diaries

Softcover. 140 × 200 mm. 624 Pages. 1000 Copies.
1st edition, 2016

Kozakov keeps a methodical record of his life. Starting at fifteen years of age, he writes his diary: detailed notes penned in 96-page standard exercise books, each entry beginning with air temperature and wind direction, describing occurrences at work and at home, and switching back and forth between musings on love and his place in society.

Gluschenkoizdat have come into possession of Nikolai Kozakov’s notebooks for the year 1962. Following extensive work on their transcription and preparation for print, the publishers present the present volume for the edification of readers, in conjunction with a radio drama. Publication has been timed to coincide with the publishers’ summary exhibition Our days are rich and bright.

I’d spent the previous night, like every other night that summer, on two soft armchairs put together to form a comfortable and even spacious (for my little eight year old body) sleeping place. Before going to bed, I always watched the Vremya broadcast: as the minute hand neared the "9:00" mark, the alarming music started to play, the map of Russia flew in front of our eyes for some reason, and then the newscasters appeared. I listened to the news about the construction of another thermal power station and the record harvest, glancing from time to time at the screen that was glimmering away in the dark. The troubled voices of the newscasters gradually calmed down, turning into a vague babble. Under the subdued murmur of the news stream about the decline of the Soviet Union, I slowly fell into a sweet slumber.

And now, here I am, stumbling from the door into the class room. Thirty boys and girls I don’t know are sitting there and I see how they start inspecting me attentively; it’s because I’m late and because they have nothing else to do, since they’ve already taken their coats off, gone into the class room, found a place for their new satchels, took their seats and folded their hands on the desks, and they were clearly waiting for something. Apparently — for me.
