About the Author:

Irina Muravyova, born in 1952 in Moscow, is a philologist by training. In 1985 she emigrated to the USA and currently lives in Boston where until recently she has been editing the Boston Marathon, a Russian-language literary gazette.
Her body of work includes a great number of short stories and novels.
Her precise and poetic stories explore the impact of Russian history on the lives of ordinary people. The Revolution and Civil War, the purges of the 1930s, and two world wars still resound in the struggles of present-day Russians in a vastly changed society. Irina Muravyova is one of the finest women authors today. Her prose is poetic and precise, always on the lookout for the precious grains of love and kindness in a hostile world.

Review:

"...an aspiring talent emerging from the recent group of emigre Russian writers." --World Literature Today


"We are proud to present the Russian author Irina Muravyova, whose stories show what powers women may call on in order to survive." --from the introduction of Women on the Case: 26 Original Stories by Today's Best Women Writers


"The Nomadic Soul is a richly suggestive blend of prose and poetry, tirelessly jumping back and forth in time and place and begging multifold connections with the present that remains poignantly unclarified. The story is told from a wide variety of perspectives and largely through dialogue, with the speaker's identity withheld often until the last moment. Muravyova revels in this at times bewildering polyphony. Here, as elsewhere, Muravyova shows her considerable talent at refashioning staples of the Russian tradition with verve and ingenuity." --Moscow Times

The nomadic soul traces the dramatic history of several generations of an upper-class family during the First World War and the Civil War in Russia.

Lala, Natasha, Toma. Three heroines are close friends, all from formerly affluent families stripped of their wealth and status by the Revolution and now struggling for their very survival in Soviet Russia. Philemon and Baucis. A married couple who live to a ripe old age in idyllic love and harmony during the perestroika years. Through flashbacks to their earlier life it becomes apparent that the husband has been the commandant of a women s labor camp in the 1930 s and enjoyed the confidence of Stalin himself.
