About Vasily Grossman

Vasily Semyonovich Grossman was born on December 12, 1905, in Berdichev, a Ukrainian town that was home to one of Europe's largest Jewish communities. In 1934 he published both "In the Town of Berdichev"--a short story that won the admiration of such diverse writers as Maksim Gorky, Mikhail Bulgakov, and Isaak Babel--and a novel, "Glyukauf," about the life of the Donbass miners. During the Second World War, Grossman worked as a reporter for the army newspaper Red Star, covering nearly all of the most important battles from the defense of Moscow to the fall of Berlin. His vivid yet sober "The Hell of Treblinka" (late 1944), one of the first articles in any language about a Nazi death camp, was translated and used as testimony in the Nuremberg trials. His novel "For a Just Cause" (originally titled "Stalingrad") was published in 1952 and then fiercely attacked. A new wave of purges--directed against the Jews--was about to begin- but for Stalin's death in March 1953, Grossman would almost certainly have been arrested. During the next few years Grossman, while enjoying public success, worked on his two masterpieces, neither of which was to be published in Russia until the late 1980s: "Life and Fate" and "Everything Flows." The KGB confiscated the manuscript of" Life and Fate" in February 1961. Grossman was able, however, to continue working on "Everything Flows," a work even more critical of Soviet society than "Life and Fate," until his last days in the hospital. He died on September 14, 1964, on the eve of the twenty-third anniversary of the massacre of the Jews of Berdichev, in which his mother had died. Robert Chandler's translations of Sappho and Guillaume Apollinaire are published in the series "Everyman's Poetry." His translations from Russian include Vasily Grossman's "Life and Fate," Leskov's "Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk" and Aleksander Pushkin's "Dubrovsky "and" The Captain's Daughter." Together with his wife, Elizabeth, and other colleagues he has co-translated numerous works by Andrey Platonov. One of these, "Soul," was chosen in 2004 as "best translation of the year from a Slavonic language" by the AATSEEL (the American Association of Teachers of Slavonic and East European Languages)- it was also shortlisted for the 2005 Rossica Translation Prize and the Weidenfeld European Translation Prize. Robert Chandler's translation of Hamid Ismailov's "The Railway" won the AATSEEL prize for 2007 and received a special commendation from the judges of the 2007 Rossica Translation Prize. Robert Chandler is the editor of Russian Short Stories from "Pushkin to Buida" and the author of a biography of Alexander Pushkin. Elizabeth Chandler is a co-translator of Platonov's "Soul" and Pushkin's "The Captain's Daughter." Anna Aslanyan's translations into Russian include works of fiction by Mavis Gallant, Zadie Smith, Jonathan Lethem, Rod Liddle, and Ali Smith. She is a contributor to the BBC Russian Service.
