Pussy Riot bi­og­ra­phy in the works

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ARTS & LIFE - By Bob Arm­strong

THE Rus­sian fem­i­nist ac­tivist and punk rock group Pussy Riot will be the sub­ject of a book to be pub­lished by the U.K.’s Granta Books next spring.

Masha Gessen, a Rus­sian jour­nal­ist who last year pub­lished a harshly crit­i­cal bi­og­ra­phy of Vladimir Putin en­ti­tled The Man With­out a Face, will tell the story of the punk ac­tivists, two of whose mem­bers are still in prison fol­low­ing a con­vic­tion for “un­der­min­ing the moral foun­da­tions of the na­tion” as a re­sult of an anti-Putin protest in a Moscow cathe­dral.
