Latunsky lives in a "newly-constructed eight-storey building"--There
was no such building in Bolshoi Nikolopeskovskii pereulok near the Arbat.
Instead Bulgakov has moved here a building built in 1935 on the other side
of the Moscow River (Lavrushinsky pereulok 17).
|The elite writers' building was finished about the time Bulgakov was given
an apartment in a less-prestigious writers' cooperative. As a writer of
questionable ideological bent, Bulgakov did not deserve the best housing.
Notice the black marble facade.
