Irina Denezhkina (Russian: Ирина Денежкина; born October 31, 1981 in Yekaterinburg) is a Russian controversial writer, notable for a vulgar style of her works, which is explained by some as a reflection of the modern reality, as of the Millennial Generation (e.g. her most famous collected stories Give Me [Songs for Lovers], Russian: "Дай мне!", published by Limbus Press in 2002). In the beginning of 2004 the book was published in the United States. Her first works, signed by a pseudonym Niger's sister (сестра Нигера), appeared in Internet in 2000. In 2008, she was the recipient of Romania's Ovid Festival Prize, awarded to a prominent young talent.
