Biography

Irina Shostakovskaya is a Russian poet. She was born in Moscow in 1978 and came to public attention in 1994, when she received an award at the All-Russian Young Poet Competition. Since 1997, her poetry and prose appeared widely. She has published several books.

She is a recipient of the Moscovsky Schet Prize and was long listed for the Debut Prize. In 2014 her collection “2013-2014: the last year book” received Andrei Bely Prize.

In 2001 she and Max Gurin of Новые Праздники fame had recorded (as Ирина Шостаковская & "Народные Комиссары") an album of soviet popular songs reimagined in a slightly wacky psychedelic dream-pop way. Album is available here: http://www.m-a-x.guru/shosta
