Reviews by Robert Blaisdell

This volume collects the poet Semyon Izrailevich Lipkin’s recollections of his encounters with the poets Anna Akhmatova and Marina Tsvetaeva and the full-length memoir of his friendship with the novelist and journalist Vasily Grossman.

The softspoken, careful, sympathetic Lipkin (1911-2003) earned a degree in engineering. But, as a master of Turkic, Persian and native languages, he made his living as a literary translator.
