Immediately after his arrival to Moscow from Vologda in 1924, Shalamov stayed with his aunt E. A. Vorobyevoy in Setun. Her apartment was located on the grounds of the Setunskaya Hospital. During the first months he worked as a teacher to help eliminate illiteracy among adults and nurses at the hospital. Afterwards, he started a job in the Kuntsevo tannery.
