About Anatoly Gladilin

See more books from this Author
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.

Billed as ""a novel of espionage at the track,"" this quirky book, which was first published in the U.S. in 1990, will appeal most to students of recent Russian history.

Fluid, satirical prose enlivens this ultimately disappointing novel about behind-the-scenes betting action at the Soviet equivalent of New York's Aqueduct.
