Irina Denezhkina (Russian: Ирина Денежкина; born October 31, 1981, Yekaterinburg) is a Russian controversial writer, notable for a vulgar style of her works, which is explained by some as a reflection of the modern reality, as of Generation Y (e.g. her most famous collected stories "Give Me [Songs for Lovers]", Russian: "Дай мне!" , published by "Limbus Press" in 2002). In the beginning of 2004 the book was published in USA. Her first works, signed by a pseudonym Niger's sister (сестра Нигера), appeared in Internet in 2000.

A native of Yekaterinburg, Denezhkina burst onto the Russian literary scene with her 2002 short story collection "Give Me! (Song for Lovers)." She originally wrote the stories as a 19-year-old journalism student at Ural State University.
Denezhkina has a grasp on contemporary culture that can only come from an insider -- her characters include rappers, punks and drunken hooligans, as well as university students.
Denezhkina has a universal outlook on what it's like to be a teenager.
However, the one thing Denezhkina does share, to return to Gwendoline Riley for a moment, is a propensity to allow photographers to capture her pout through the lens, seductively and aloofly in various publicity shots.
IrinaDenezhkina's Give Me (Songs for Lovers) is a mighty crack of the whip and should alert the literary establishment that pouting, young good-looking female authors who, through no fault of there own, are immediately categorised and slickly marketed can process a bite of their own as devastating as the next.
