YEVGENY ZAMYATIN (1884-1937) was a writer, critic and publicist. An “Old Bolshevik” who had been exiled to Siberia under the tsar, he is best known for his science fiction novel We, which in 1921, was the first work banned by the Soviet state. Zamyatin smuggled it abroad for publication and the ensuing outrage led to his exile in 1931. He lived out his life in France.
