One of Russia’s finest short story writers makes her U.S. debut in this enthralling collection of fiction. Women’s lives are the central preoccupation of Natalya Baranskaya: A scientist frantically juggles her professional life with her duties as wife and mother; a woman writer who regrets never marrying is finally glad of it; a delinquent girl is brought before the people’s court for her “anti-social” behavior. With candor and satirical wit, Baranskaya captures perfectly everyday realities of family and society. Request Desk/Exam Copy
