About the Author


Alexander Ivanovich Kuprin (1870 – 1938) was a Russian writer known for bringing up topics that were considered scandalous and indecent, from marital issues to the fates of Russian prostitutes. While many romantic writers safely confined their storylines to high society, Kuprin ran a full gamut of characters, including his fellow pilots and explorers, as well as circus performers, actors, children and animals.


Maria K. (Maria Igorevna Kuroshchepova) is a writer, translator, and blogger, covering a wide range of topics from travel and fashion to politics and social issues.
A non-fiction and science fiction writer in her own right, Maria is also a prolific translator of less-known works of Russian and Soviet literature into English. Her most prominent translations include her grandfather Vasily Kuznetsov’s Siege of Leningrad journals titled The Ring of Nine, and Thais of Athens – a historic novel by Ivan Yefremov. Both works quickly made their way into the top 100 Kindle publications in their respective categories and continue attracting consistent interest and acclaim from readers.
