Konstantin and Mouse
In 1972 a collection of Russian poetry by five young St. Petersburg poets was published in New York . The book was called The Living Mirror. Two of the young poets – Konstantin Kuzminsky and Josef Brodsky soon immigrated to the United States .
Josef Brodsky became famous, won the Nobel Prize in Literature
in 1987 and died of heart attack nine years later.
Such a fulfilled destiny has eluded Konstantin, so far. L'Enfant terrible of the Russian literati Konstantin K. Kuzminsky lives in a tiny upstate New York village, on the bank of the Delaware River in an old shanty house near a railway crossing. His freedom is complete. His devotion to art is absolute.
He lives with his books, his art collection, his cats and his poetry.
