Vasilevskaya 2 (1972–1979)
After the house on Khoroshevskoe Highway where Shalamov lived was demolished in 1972, he had to move again, this time to 2 Vasilevskaya Street. It was a typical five-story building, which had been built in 1958 during Khrushchev’s period. Shalamov lived there for ten years until he was forced to move into a nursing home.
This period of Shalamov’s life is associated with his deteriorating health.
