There Once Lived a Mother Who Loved Her Children, Until They Moved Back In by Ludmilla Petrushevskaya

Monday • March 30 • 6pm

The book store cafe fireside

77-year-old Ludmilla Petrushevskaya is arguably Russias best-known living writer, the author of over one hundred stories. Grimly witty, uncomfortably realistic, her deadpan tales of everyday Russians are candid and spare, frank and funny. She portrays the constant drama of maternal love surviving in domestic hell.

These are not the atrocities of work camps, but the sufferings inflicted by loved ones upon each other across the hall. Her heroines are tired, scared, impoverished women crowded into cramped, identical concrete communal apartments.

Petrushevskaya dares to be open-eyed and open-mouthed about the breakdown of traditional human values. Her daringly honest, oddly comic tales show ordinary families bitterly at war with each other and themselves.
