My Name is Elsa


The novel’s actions are taking place in modern Russia and show what problems ordinary women face: unemployment, betrayal of a loved one, crisis of family relations, difficulties in communicating with children, lack of money, lack of time for oneself, search for one's ‘I’ in adulthood. These problems, I think, are not unique to women in modern Russia. Nevertheless, the heroines of the novel overcome the difficulties and find their place in life, meet people whom they can trust. The heroines think: I am a woman! I have my desires and my needs! And I want people to see me as a person!

Suddenly, fate brings two completely different women: a resident of Moscow and a provincial from Kalevala, a small town in Karelia.
Each woman has her own life, her own concerns, her own priorities. But they are united by one and the same thing: disorder in personal life and financial difficulties. Women begin to work in the ‘Phone Sex’ service. What until recently seemed to women forbidden, unacceptable, lecherous firmly enters their lives. Well-educated intelligent women are mastering a new craft, trying to make money and survive. This circumstance changes not only their familiar world, but also life as a result.
