Gleb Alexeyev

1 contribution found for Russian Life and/or Chtenia.

Gleb Alexeyev was born in Moscow in 1892 and wrote his first story when he was sixteen. He fought in the First World War as a pilot, and was wounded. During the Civil War, he was a homeless refugee and ended up abroad, but in 1923 returned to Russia, by which time he was already a famous author. He was arrested in 1938 and died in prison. He was rehabilitated after Stalin’s death and in 1961 a one-volume collection of his works was published, yet it did not include Underground Moscow.
