One third of the Persephone Books office has been in St Petersburg and then Moscow for the last ten days so this week on the Post – Russian women writers or (since there are alas not so many of these) writers very much associated with women. First, irresistibly, the famous 1914 painting of Anna Akhmatova by Altman in the Hermitage. We also visited the flat where Akhmatova lived.
