"Babiashkina has a deft comic touch and a sure ability to spoof genre fiction. Here is the story of a strong-willed pensioner who plans to write the Great Russian Novel of her generation in a residential care home, only to discover more than she bargained for."—Muireann Maguire, translator

Winner of the Debut Prize and Bestseller Prize, Anna Babiashkina raises such universal women's issues as aging, family relationships, generation gaps, recapturing one's youth, and making something out of one's life in one's last active years.
