SERGEi KLYCHKOV (1889-1940) was the son of a shoemaker who was noted as a poet by early in the 20th century, but soon shifted mainly to prose. After the Revolution, he lived in Moscow and wrote several novels about village life which, after 1927, were attacked as reactionary. He was effectively sentenced to internal exile in 1934 and arrested in 1937. He died in prison.
