Time: Night

Author(s): Ludmilla Petrushevskaya

Location(s): Russia

Genre(s): Fiction, Humour, Satire

Era(s): Soviet era

First published in Russia in 1992, “The Time: Night” is a darkly humorous depiction of the Soviet utopia’s underbelly by one of the most brilliant stylists in contemporary Russian literature. Anna Andrianova is a trite poet and disastrous parent. Heading a household dominated by women, she can cling to the myth of the all-powerful yet suffering Russian matriarch. Challenging that myth is her headstrong daughter Alyona, a woman with appalling judgment and several illegitimate children, who both needs Anna and hates her.
