Teffi, pseudonym of Nadezhda Lokhvitskaya (1872–1952). Though well-known in her lifetime, Teffi was - like many emigre writers - somewhat forgotten for several decades after her death. Her stories are now published ever more widely in Russia, as well as being translated into several languages. Pushkin Press have recently published 3 volumes of her stories and memoirs.
