Goodreads asked Ksenia Anske:

What are you currently working on?

Ksenia Anske I'm writing my 5th novel, IRKADURA. Actually, in about 2 weeks I will be done with the 4th and final draft and will send it to my editor. This books has been the hardest for me to write so far. It's loosely based on my personal experience of being a pregnant teenager in Russia of the 1990s right after the Constitutional Crisis. The main character, Irka, is abused, runs away from home and has to survive on the streets of Moscow. She does so by seeing people as animals, boars, jackals, vultures and other beasts, and herself as a mouse. Eventually she has to choose between the two realities, and it's a choice between life and death.
