Summary

Author Notes

Gladilin's first work was published in 1956 in the liberal literary magazine Yunost (Youth); numerous books and journal publications followed. His concerns are typical of the "new voices" generation of the 1960s, his heroes are usually young men dealing with both personal and ethical problems.

Gladilin left the Soviet Union in 1976 after one of his novels was rejected by the censor, but later published in the West. Since then, he has been very active in emigre literary life. The witty Moscow Racetrack was published in Russian in 1983. The Making and Unmaking of a Soviet Writer (1979) is an autobiographical account of the pressures of Soviet literary life.
