Tatyana Parfinova: «Like all my stories, it is about a girl with a good education. This time my heroine is a Jewish beauty, but there are no elements of national costume in the collection, only my inner associations». «It is about an intellectual girl, a teacher. She is a calm, wise, carefree, very interesting girl, who lives in a port city – Lisbon or Saint-Petersburg – where various interesting things occur. She is keen on botany, zoology and music. She knows and loves literature. For me it is very important to visualize a specific woman; then I am not working in a void, but for her, with love».
