Born 1983, Ksenia Buksha lives in St. Petersburg, Russia, and raises two children. She is the author of several books of prose and numerous verse collections.
The Petersburg writer Ksenia Buksha is a literary phenomenon. She won the Russian NatsBest prize (for the best novel of the year) back in 2014 for her tenth book, The Freedom Factory, when she was just 31 years old. She was the second-youngest writer, and the youngest woman, ever to win. She was also shortlisted for the Big Book Prize for Freedom Factory, and now has been shortlisted again for Churov and Churbanov, making her one of only two writers—and the only woman—ever to be shortlisted for the Big Book twice before the age of 40. She is also the youngest person ever to be shortlisted for the Big Book.
