Maxim Maister writes in Russian language but his books, stories
and fairytales are international because devoted to the most important
questions for a human: who am I? what is this world I’m ended up
in, is there a meaning of life? Many questions that everyone is
searching answer to. It is impossible to give to others ready answers
to such questions because everyone has to find the answers on his
own. We can only help a bit and to give a hint, to create an image
so that by looking upon it one at once exclaims: “Here it is!”
That’s what Maxim Maister, a writer and philosopher, does — creating
images, sharing his experience and vision of the world through fairytales
and parables. He simply shows a layer or a plane of our life but
the conclusions are up to the readers.
The author himself does not call himself a writer, but rather —
an explorer of life. And indeed every text of Maxim Maister is not
only a work of art but also a reflection, exploration of one or
the other… the main… question.
