About the Author: Elena Chizhova

Elena Chizhova, a former economist, teacher and entrepreneur, finally turned to writing in 1996 after being rescued from a burning cruise ship. Since that time she has been consumed by the need to write, and has enjoyed considerable success as a result. Chizhova’s prose shuns trickery in favour of emotional honesty in order to probe the weeping sores of Russian history that contemporary culture would sooner forget.

Chizhova was born in 1957 in Leningrad, the city which provides the setting for her award-winning novel, The Time of Women, about the secret culture of resistance and remembrance amongst the mothers, grandmothers, aunts and daughters of Russia. Chizhova is the director of the local PEN centre in St. Petersburg. (Source: Academia-Rossica)

En el San Petesburgo de principio de los sesenta, una niña que prefiere la pintura a la palabra se convierte en el centro de la vida de las personas que conviven con ella: su madre, una humilde obrera venida de provincias, y tres ancianas supervivientes de otros tiempos, quién sabe si mejores. Entre remiendos, platos pobres y tristes coladas, lecciones de francés y supersticiones campesinas, las cuatro mujeres formarán alrededor de la niña un muro, levantado con devoción, que intentará protegerla de la crueldad del mundo.
