This book consists of two parts. The first part includes lyric poetry written by the author. The majority of poems are romantic lyrics, written in the traditional Russian poetic style of the beginning of the 19th century. The second part consists of a theatrical play of life so-called “new Russians”, but with traditional elements. This play is based on the work of Anton Chekhov. Re-reading Chekhov, I became convinced that the same problems that afflicted Russian society at the beginning of last century, such as corruption and disregard for human rights persist to this very day. This gave me the idea for writing the play. I transferred the action of the play onto our time from the the beginning of last century. I have used material from twenty of Chekhov’s works to compose a single new play. I am sure that Anton Pavlovich would have written something similar were he to live in our era. Katya is a young woman, a former actress, living on the capital accounts of her deceased father, who belonged to the Russian mafia. She lives according to the same laws as her father did. Katya uses her acting skills in real life in her relationship with family, friends and simple acquaintances alike. She wants everyone to take her not as she actually is, but as she herself would like to be. Exposure of her game by the doctor, who used to treat her family and knew her father, does not embarrass her in the least. She is certain that nothing can shake the foundations of the new life in Russia. Acknowledgements This play reached the semifinal of playwriting competition at the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Oregon, as well as positive responses from several theatres have bolstered my wish to publish this play. I am very grateful to these people.

Lydia Skalozub

I, Lydia Skalozub, graduated from the Riga Technical University and worked as an engineer for many years in Latvia, former Soviet Union Republic. In my half-century of life I have had to change occupations several times. Intricate and at the time strange confluences of events, enhanced by curiosity, have led me to the USA. Besides my primary work, in different periods of life I have had various interests and hobbies with which I have occupied myself in my free time. And my fascination with literature has entered a more serious phase – I’ve begun to write. And the culmination of this interest is this book. In it I have included a theatrical play and a collection of my lyric poems.
