VietNamNet Bridge - A Russian professor has proposed the Vietnamese novel “Cô gái đến từ hôm qua” (The girl comes from yesterday) be included in official curricula at the Moscow State University.

Dr. Maxim Syunnerberg, of the Vietnamese faculty belonging to the Moscow State University, wants his faculty to teach the novel written by the famous 46-year-old Vietnamese writer Nguyen Nhat Anh.

Syunnerberg is one author of the Russian-Vietnamese dictionary published in 2008.

The 10 chapters of the original novel are suggested to be arranged into 16 chapters to fit the 16-week study schedule.

In related news, last month, Anh officially allowed Thailand-based Nanmee Books publishing house to translate his short story “Give Me a Ticket Back to Childhood” into a Thailand version.

The book last year won the Southeast Asian Writers Awards 2010 in Thailand.

It is expected to be released in Thailand in early August to mark the 35th anniversary of the two countries’ diplomatic relations.

Anh is a Vietnamese author well-known for his engaging stories for both teenagers and adults. He also works as a teacher, a poet and a reporter.

His works are enormous, including approximately 24 short stories, two giant novel series and poetry collections.

He is regarded as one of the most successful writers for teenagers.

His most well-known series “Kinh Van Hoa” (Kaleidoscope) which contains 45 volumes about three teenagers and the stories around their friendship and school life, has recently been adapted into four drama series of the same name.

In 1995, he was voted the most popular writer in the last 20 years (1975-1995) and the most talented individual through a poll held by Tuoi Tre newspaper.
