Memorial Plaque to Sergey Dovlatov Installed in Ufa
Sergey Dovlatov, famous Russian writer

Recently the opening ceremony of the memorial plaque to the famous Russian writer Sergey Dovlatov has taken place in Ufa. It was installed on the house, where the writer spent his childhood (56, Gogol St.). 

      Sergey Dovlatov was born on September 3, 1941 in the family of stage director and literary corrector. After becoming famous, he often mentioned his hometown in his works. The initiative to commemorate the writer was supported by the president of Bashkortostan Republic.

      In the middle of 1940 Dovlatov's family moved to Leningrad (now St. Petersburg). From 1972 he lived in Tallin and worked as a journalist in the newspaper. Then he was a tour guide in Pushkin museum reserve not far from Pskov. In 1976 Dovlatov returned to Leningrad, where he wrote prose, but his stories didn't appear in Soviet magazines. From the late 1960s he was published in samizdat, and in 1976 some of his works were issued in Western publications.

      In 1978 Dovlatov immigrated to Vienna, and then moved to New York, where the world has finally seen his books.

      He died of heart failure on August 24, 1990 in New York.
