Author Biography - Andrey Platonov

Andrey Platonov (1899--1951) was born in a village near the Russian town of Voronezh. He began to publish poems and stories in the 1920s and worked as a land reclamation expert in central Russia, where he was a witness to the ravages of the Great Famine. In the 1930s Platonov fell into disfavor with the Soviet government and his writing disappeared from sight. NYRB Classics published a new translation of Soul and Other Stories in 2007. .Robert Chandler has translated selections of Sappho and Apollinaire and is the editor of Russian Short Stories from Pushkin to Buida. His translations from Russian include Pushkin's Dubrovsky and The Captain's Daughter, Leskov's Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, Vasily Grossman's Life and Fate and Hamid Ismailov's The Railway. His co-translations of Andrey Platonov have won prizes in the UK and the US. His Alexander Pushkin is published by Hesperus in their series of 'Brief Lives'. He teaches part time at Queen Mary, University of London. Elizabeth Chandler is a co-translator of several volumes of Platonov and of Pushkin's The Captain's Daughter. Olga Meerson teaches at Georgetown University and is the author of Dostoevsky's Taboos (in English) and Platonov's Poetic of Re-Familiarization (in Russian). She is a co-translator of Platonov's Soul and Other Stories, which, in 2004, was awarded the AATSEEL prize for "best translation from a Slavonic language."
