Summary (From the publisher):

Anna Andrianova is a trite poet and disastrous parent living at the margin of a disintegrating Soviet culture. Despite heading a household of females—her mother; her daughter, Alyona; and Alyona's illegitimate children—Anna stubbornly subscribes to the Russian myth of traditional motherhood. Challenging that myth is Alyona, a woman of appallingly bad judgment who both needs Anna and hates her. Anna's voyage into the Soviet utopia's underbelly is a testimony to the dire fate of the mother/martyr under Communist rule, yet the journey is undertaken with warped humor and sarcasm—the expression of Anna's desperation and the source of her strength as well.
