Alexander Grin

ALEXANDER GRIN (1880-1932), born Alexander Grinevsky, was best known as a writer of fantasy novels and stories of the sea (especially Scarlet Sails). His short stories after the revolution were extremely popular and he moved to Feodosiya in Crimea. But his romanticism came into conflict with the new regime and he and his wife sunk into poverty, alcoholism and illness. He died of cancer in Stary Krym.
