Writer admits to three pseudonyms
Boris Akunin, who is best-known for creating the fictional nineteenth-century sleuth Erast Fandorin, recently admitted to having two additional pseudonyms (the writer’s real name is Grigory Chkhartishvili).
Writing in his Livejournal blog, borisakunin.livejournal.com, the bestselling author expressed the idea that “dull is the male writer who has never wanted to be a female writer, to try to imagine what it would be like to be a woman, to look at the world through a woman’s eyes.”
