Raised in Dagestan, Ganieva has lived in Moscow since 2002, where she graduated from the Gorky Literature Institute as a literary critic. She is an editor at NG - Ex Libris. Ganieva made her debut under the male pseudonym Gulla Khirachev with Salam Dalgat, a story about the North Caucasus. Her first novel, Holiday Mountain, about the possible separation of the Caucasus from Russia and life between Islamism and globalization was shortlisted for the Yasnaya Polyana prize, translated into several languages, and published in Germany, the United States, Spain, and Italy. It will shortly be published in France. In 2015, Ganieva’s novel Bride and Groom was shortlisted for the Russian Booker and received a special prize – a grant for publication in the United Kingdom. The novel is also expected to be published in Germany and the USA. In June 2015, Ganieva was listed by The Guardian as one of the most talented and influential young people living in Moscow. Ganieva’s book Bride and Groom will be released in the English-speaking world in September 2017.
