Irina Borisova

Irina Borisova has been married to a famous pop composer for over 20 years. She published the book under the pseudonym Nora Filippova and called it "Nezhena". It is quite natural that autobiographical motives are traced in the book, since the novel tells the story of a forty-year-old woman who is having difficulty going through a divorce from her musician husband.

Nora Filippova, "Nezhena"

Due to the fact that the book was published only 7 years after the actual divorce of the spouses, it turned out to be quite fascinating, and a happy ending gives hope to every reader who is going through difficult times. There is in the author's bibliography one more book "Huntress under the constellation Mamba", which is a sequel to "Nezhena".

Alena Sterligova, wife of German Sterligov

Alena and German Sterligov with children

The wife of a famous Russian entrepreneur gave her book a very provocative title: "Broken husband … What I had to go through with German Sterligov." However, there are no scenes of beating or a description of the life of an unfortunate woman beaten by her husband in the book.

On the contrary, Alena Sterligova is trying to reveal to the readers her recipe for family happiness. However, not every modern woman will agree to live in complete submission to her husband and to fulfill unconditionally all his commands.

Alena Sterligova, "Beaten by my husband … What I had to go through with German Sterligov."

Alena describes in detail the way of life of her family, talks about raising five children, shares the secrets of home birth and recalls life with her husband at a time when they still lived in the city and did not bother to create their own "Sloboda".

The book, thanks to such an ambiguous title, is popular, but not everyone is able to read this work to the end.
