Ksenia Buksha

Poet, fiction writer, and artist Ksenia Buksha was born in St. Petersburg. She holds a degree in economics from St. Petersburg State University and has worked as a journalist, copywriter, and day trader. Since her breakout fiction collection Alyonka the Partisan (2002), Buksha has been winning acclaim as a brilliant stylist and satirist whose linguistic experimentation is guided by a healthy sense of the absurd. In 2004, her novel The Freedom Factory won the National Bestseller award and was a finalist for the Big Book Award; its English translation, by Anne O. Fisher, was published by Phoneme Editions in 2018. Buksha’s work has been translated into Polish, Chinese, French, and English.
