Yulia Melnikova. Lviv samotnikh serdets'. (Lviv of Lonely Hearts).
"And who said that Russians do not understand Lviv? Young Russian writer Yulia Melnikova has written a novel about the Lviv of lone mystics and lost hopes. This is a weird text. A bizarre vignette, an oriental fantasy about mad sect members or about in what scary ways the past may intertwine with the future? About Levi, the called brother of Shabtai Zvi, who departed for Lviv to get the cabbalistic manuscript of Ezra d'Alba? About his love for Mrs. Sabine from the Piast family or about the brutal duel of Rabbi Cohen with Jesuit Nesvitsky? About this as well, but above all – about the mystical twin of Jerusalem, the city on seven hills under the lion emblem...

The novel is based on actual historical facts. The action takes place in the last quarter of the 17th century."
