Biography[edit]

Tatyana was raised in Moscow. She was exiled to Tashkent in 1941, after the murder of her mother by the NKVD.[1] In Tashkent, Tatyana worked as a journalist, producing many articles and sketches. She published a memoir of her father, The House on the Nikolsky Boulevard. Tatyana's novel Zhenya, the Wonder of the Twentieth Century was the only work of fiction she published in her lifetime, though she left other works in manuscript at her death.[1]
