    1."xxx and xxx represent a generation thoroughly imbued with the pain of loss, hardened on the outside, but not inside. Their past is a series of tragedies, their heritage is a memory, from which they derive their strength and vital resistance. Their succinct and rough (what is a rough sentence?) sentences contain age-folk wisdom and simple rustic logic, which help the family to survive in the country that is moving towards the bright communist future, where the goods will be in abundance and no more need of money money won't be necessary. "

    2. Since that time she has been consumed by the need to write and has become fulfilled herself as a gifted writer, having made her debut with the novel "xxx xxx" in the “Star” magazine in xxxx. xxx's works have earned attention and won critical acclaim due to the emotional frankness of her works, which refer to sorrowful pages of Russian history from a perspective of an ordinary man, carrying the burden of the hard times. A native of St.Petersburg, xxxx always makes the city provide the settings for her novels and projects family experience onto characters. Thus, the novel, xxxx "xxx" is not (Does the title include her name? If so, expand the quotes and add a comma after name) completely autobiographical.
    Combining literary writing with a position of the St. Petersburg PEN Club Director and the international journal "World Word" editor, xxxx continues to create works that reveal significant aspects of the Russians existence at crucial periods of the country’s history.


    3. Theatre director xxx staged a play based on xxxx's book “xxx” in the xxx Theatre xxx, fully conveying an atmosphere of a communal life in the early 60s. The roles of the mother xxx and daughter xxx are played by the same actress. That (maybe "it" would be better) embodies the author’s concept of the novel’s multiple narrators.
    A few suggestions.

    I really appreciate the help provided, but the text is going to be used for my job and I wouldn't like to have it visible in this way. That's why I'm asking you to do it, because it's really important for me. Moreover, the text is very really specific.

    Dear billmcd,
    Could you please delete your post? Thank you many times, but please do it

    Is it possible to change, at least, the author to Ivanova and the title to "..." in 2nd and 3rd parts of the text?
