About the Author:
Ludmilla Prtrushevskaya was born in 1938 and is considered one of the most prominent dramatists in contemporary Russian theater. She is the author of the collection Immortal Love: Stories and the plays Cinzano and Three Girls in Blue.
Sally Laird translated Voices of Russian Literature: Interviews with Ten Contemporary Writers and Petrushevskaya's Immortal Love: Stories.
Presented in the form of scribbled notes written by one Anna Andrianovna in the solitary, desolate, and consoling hours of the night, this extraordinarily intense novel juxtaposes Anna's dreams and despair with startling wit and sublety, resulting in a revelation of modern Russian life that offers a brilliant illumination of the knot of love and fury that binds a family together.
