Otherworldly forces, dark phantasmagoria, the horrors of underground life crossed with mythical fairytales, all swirl in Alla Gorbunova's audacious and spectacular novel.

Children, students, beggars, young poets; Alla Gorbunova's heroes and heroines live their lives intensively, balancing between longing and euphoria in their lives in St. Petersburg.

But Gorbunova's stories are far from everyday life: she looks at a fragile and dangerous reality with uncompromising tenderness, above all capable of transforming her characters.

Alla Gorbunova has published five books of poetry and received the Andrei Bely Prize for her 2019 collection Inside Starfall. Her first collection of short prose, Ings & Oughts, was published in 2017 by the Saint Petersburg publishing house Limbus Press. Her books have been translated into more than 10 languages. Elina Alter is a writer and translator living in New York. She is an oral history fellow at the Yiddish Book Center and the editor of Circumference, a journal of translation and international culture.
