Abstract:

"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.

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.
