Alexander Grin *

a.k.a. Alexander Stepanovich Grinevsky

Author Code: RAGX

Born: Aug. 23, 1880 - Vyatka (Kirov), Russia

Died: Jul. 8, 1932 - Feodosia, The Crimea, Russia

Grin was the son of an exiled Pole and spent much of his early youth in poverty. He went to Odessa when he was 15 and over the next few years worked at a number of jobs as he continued to travel through much of European Russia and the Urals. He joined the army and in the early 1900's became a member of the Socialist Revolutionary Party, which subsequently led to his arrest and exile to Siberia. When he returned from exile he devoted himself to writing, drawing on his many travels and adventures. He published his first short stories in 1906. In 1912, he moved to St. Petersburg and in 1924 settled in Feodosia near the sea which he loved so much. Grin is noted primarily for his short stories which were often full of odd characters, mystery and fantasy. During the late 1920's Soviet censors began to put pressure on Grin and by 1950 his work was condemned by the state. After Stalin's death in 1953, Grin's work experienced a revival. Among his better-known works are Scarlet Sails (1923), The Shining World (1923), The Golden Chain (1925), The Wave Runner (1928) and The Road to Nowhere (1930).
