"The Running City" is a “virtual-cinematographic-novel”, an absurd and touching story of two friends who live in a running city, a place where everything, including buildings and people, is running and slipping away.

Hovhannes Teqgyozyan is a writer that touches sensitive themes that are not easily picked and discussed by people. He chooses ones that are controversial and taboo in Armenia. Most of them reflect on socio-cultural differences and intolerance toward them, such as sexuality, homosexuality, suicide, and drug addiction. Some of them are filled with politics, such as oligarchy and corruption.

This novel is a modern story… More exactly, “Skin Pain” is an anti-novel, which presents the various pieces of the same story, from a different vantage point, from the eyes of different characters, with different conceptions of reality. “Skin Pain” anti-novel has the goal of documenting reality. But the Yerevanian documentariness is observed from different vantage points; at the same time from within, mainly indulging the close up.
More about three segmets of this novel you can read on the page : http://literature.am/book/skin-pain/
