Publication in 'New World' 'fantastic narrative of the breakaway jig' "Captain Dikshtein" (1987), . written in line with the 'fantastic realism' AF Veltman, . Gogol, . Dostoevsky, and not without the influence of romantic dvoemiriya E. T. A. Hoffmann, . where a certain percentage avtobiografizma shown double life of a typical 'little' people of Russian Literature, . externally imperceptible dreamer, . creates a different, . high existence, . brought Kuraeva fame,
. Unpretentiousness main plot canvas (the hero, having passed the morning bottles of linseed oil and drinking beer on the way home died of a heart attack) hides the complex inner layer being. Turns, . that the hero of the work is not really Igor Dikshtein, . as someone 'forelock', . sailor'bratishka ', . once be shot as a member of the Kronstadt rebellion in March 1921, . but accidentally survived because, . that instead of error (meaningful for this story, . transforming into a real man, a plan for a symbolic totalitarian elitist thinking aphorism of 'forest' and 'Sliver', . which should not be spared when an important matter 'logging') killed this Dikshtein,
. The hero takes the name of dead man, . implanted in an unfamiliar human nature and wittingly or unwittingly fulfilling the purpose shot: be 'in the middle of history', . between its poles, . be that 'little' man, . for which we make the revolution and which, . beating, . quickly forget, . and 'small' people stay with their problems and hopes with myself and make their own reality, . beyond the control of the surrounding dirt, . ennobled his 'purified', . improved, . idealized 'I' (in this case, the imaginary 'I' died Dikshtein), . if, once again proving the validity of the maxim Bakhtin on, . that everyone more of their own destiny,

Influence of Dostoevsky, with his eternal theme of intertwining of God and the devil in the human mind very clearly in the novel "Night Watch: Nocturne for two voices with the participation of arrow VOKhR Comrade.
