Galina Yuzefovich is one of the most famous and influential literary critics in Russia. Her book reviews regularly influence consumer demand in the Russian book market. In 2017, Yuzefovich wrote her first book, The Wonderful Adventures of a Pilot Fish – a collection of articles about iconic authors of the 20th and 21st centuries (Elena Shubina Publishers) that has become an in-depth guide to contemporary Russian and foreign literature. In the introduction to her book, she has written that her work is like a portable tuning fork – ‘an instrument for organizing and setting your book space in tune’. She serves as literary observer and columnist for Meduza, writing reviews for a regular weekly audience of 15,000 people. She also teaches the history of contemporary literature at the Higher School of Economics and the Moscow School of Management Skolkovo.
