Seizure

Drawing by Natalia Mikhaylenko

Voice over by Elena Krovvidi 

In the spirit of a Russian Kerouac, Bogatyreva chronicles one young woman's hitchhiking adventures through Russia's less traveled places.


Irina Bogatyreva was born in 1982 in Kazan, the capital of Tatarstan. She is considered one of Russia's most promising writers and recently traveled to the United States with fellow winners of The Debut Prize for young authors. Bogatyreva is published in leading literary magazines, and her first two books – AutoSTOP (Exmo Publishers, 2008) and Comrade Anna (AST Publishers, 2011)–have been published by top Moscow houses.
