Great authors have come and gone, leaving a legacy through their words and experiences. Gulassarian has made his mark with this work, presenting to us a world of aimless sex, joyless alcohol binges, and unanswered dreams in a city of decadence. He has lived it and he has described it best in "Scum", giving us a close look at life at a cross-roads. What would you choose: freedom and uncertainty, or love and commitment? An ordinary life is unsatisfactory for our hero, and the only thing that seems to bring any enjoyment is for him to lose himself in the liberties Amsterdam has to offer. There is, however, a woman that has been the reason behind his happiness, his pain, his joy, his misery. And though he engages in adventures to forget his past relationship, it seems to constantly creep back into his life.Biografía del autor:
Robert Gulassarian was born in 1989 in Moscow, Russia to a piano instructor mother and businessman father. At an early age, his family decided to move to Toronto, Canada but his father remained back in Moscow on account of business for most of Robert's adolescent and teen years. He attended York University, and on his exchange to Amsterdam he began and finished his first major novel. His various experiences with unavailable women and his inability to remain fixed in one location became the leading influences in his writing. He was passionately involved with writing in all forms. From screenplays to short stories and novellas to novels, and he took his interests to the next level when he directed an independent short film. Amongst his greatest influences are Hunter S. Thompson, Charles Bukowski, Ernest Hemingway, Mikhail Lermontov, and Fyodor Dostoevsky. He is currently in the process of migrating to Paris, France.
