Parallel Texts

This is a parallel-text edition of 'Bronka,' a short story by Ludmila Ulitskaya, one of contemporary Russia's most popular and internationally acclaimed authors. First published in 1989, the story depicts the childhood and youth of Bronka, the eponymous heroine, who lives with her mother in a drab communal apartment in a rundown Moscow neighborhood in the years following the Second World War. To make ends meet, Bronka's mother works as a cleaning woman from morning till night, while her teenage daughter is left to fend for herself. Faced with crowded living quarters, boorish neighbors, and the bleak realities of post-war urban life in Moscow, Bronka takes an unconventional path to find emotional connection, and ultimately love and fulfillment. 'Bronka' is an extraordinary tale, written in elegant prose, and its depiction of everyday life makes this an excellent literary text for students of Russian language, literature, and culture.
