Lizka is a Russian living an unexciting life in a backward rural town. After her unsatisfactory sexual experience sets the locals' tongues wagging, she moves to a larger town in search of a new life. Drawing out the tragic-comic nature of the characters, this work presents a picture of provincial Russian characters, habits, opinions and desires.
Alexander Ikonnikov was born in 1974 in Urshum near Kirov on Lake Viatka. Having finished his German studies, Ikonnikow was due to do military service. This had little appeal for him, so he opted for the civilian option. He became an English teacher without knowing a word of English, and after a 2-year stint in the snow covered wasteland of Bystritza he returned to Kirov to become a journalist. He now writes full-time. Lizka and Her Men is the first of Ikonnikow's works to be translated into English.
