About the Author
Lida Yusupova was born in the Soviet Union, in Petrozavodsk--a small city that in Soviet times was both ordinarily provincial and unusually open to the West, and even to outer space. But, alas, she slept through the famous 1977 alien visitation. After she was forced to abandon her studies at Leningrad State University (having been accused of being both depraved and anti-Soviet), Yusupova worked at the post office. When she hung a portrait of Isaac Babel over her cot in the dormitory, the other post girls thought it was her father. In 1996, Yusupova left Russia, first for Jerusalem and then for Toronto; in 2004, she moved to Belize.
