Dora Grafova, a woman in her eighties, talks about the various magazines that she used to subscribe to during Soviet times. She received 17 different monthly magazines for herself, her husband, and her son: about gardens, about the world, about techniques, about women, the Soviet woman, and about growing potatoes. She has kept them all in her apartment in Narva.—Eléonore de Montesquiou
