Still Waters Run Deep: Young Women's Writing from Russia (New Russian Writing) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These frank, unsparing, and varied stories by women in their twenties and thirties reveal the evolution of women's consciousness in Russia through two decades of violent social upheaval—including the dramatic monologue of a teenage girl who grew up in an orphanage; an escape to the Altai Mountains and the mysterious local rites and lore; the seamy side of Siberian business and a young man's failure to get to grips with it; the tricky backstage life of a provincial theater; the private life of a wealthy family which mirrors the social stratification in Russian society today.

Synopsis:

Seven Russian writers under 30, winners of the prestigious Debut Prize, tackle issues faced by women,including formerly forbidden subjects.

She writes mono-plays running in many theaters. “Natashas Dream” is a monologue of a teenage girl from an orphanage: she falls in love with a young reporter and tells him the horrible story of her life, but the reporter is just hunting for a sensational story and betrays her confidence by publishing it in the local newspaper. “Natashas Dream” was produced in London and Baltimore. Her latest play “The Bride of Clubs” is being produced at the London Royal Court Theatre.

Olga Rimsha (b. 1988) from Novosibirsk (Siberia), winner of the Debut Prize for her short novel Still Water describes her writings as “pessimistic optimism”.
