The short stories of Johan Devletyan’s new book are alike to the stories in his previous book ‘A Man and a Half’ being talentedly written and moving; yet different as in his new book, beside his realistic narratives the author thrills us with fantastic motives. The best about ‘Experiments, Loves, Undeniability,…… Various Stories’ collection is that Johan Devletyan not simply experiments with technics, but he does it with love; hence, the undeniable result – it’s a work of art.
