Product description

Review

One of Russia's best living writers ... her tales inhabit a borderline between this world and the next (The New York Times)

Petrushevskaya proves that the literary tradition that produced Dostoyevsky, Gogol and Babel is alive and well (The Daily Beast)

About the Author

Ludmilla Petrushevskaya was born in Moscow in 1938 and is the only indisputable canonical writer currently writing in Russian today. She is the author of more than fifteen collections of prose, among them the short novel The Time: Night, shortlisted for the Russian Booker Prize in 1992, and Svoi Krug, a modern classic about the 1980's Soviet intelligentsia. Petrushevskaya is equally important as a playwright: since the 1980s her numerous plays have been staged by the best Russian theater companies. In 2002, Petrushevskaya received Russia's most prestigious prize, The Triumph, for lifetime achievement. She lives in Moscow.
