More About Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky & Joanne Turnbull

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky (1887-1950), the Ukrainian-born son of Polish emigrants, studied law and classical philology at Kiev University. After graduation and two summers spent exploring Europe, he was obliged to clerk for an attorney. A sinecure, the job allowed him to devote most of his time to literature and his own writing. In 1920, he began lecturing in Kiev on theater and music. The lectures continued in Moscow, where he moved in 1922, by then well known in literary circles. Lodged in a cell-like room on the Arbat, Krzhizhanovsky wrote steadily for close to two decades. His philosophical and phantasmagorical fictions ignored injunctions to portray the Soviet state in a positive light. Three separate efforts to print collections were quashed by the censors, a fourth by World War II. Not until 1989 could his work begin to be published. Like Poe, Krzhizhanovsky takes us to the edge of the abyss and forces us to look into it. I am interested, he said, not in the arithmetic, but in the algebra of life.
Joanne Turnbull s translations from Russian in collaboration with Nikolai Formozov include Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky s "Memories of the Future "and "The Letter Killers Club" (both NYRB Classics).
Adam Thirlwell is the author of two novels, "Politics "and "The Escape"; a novella, "Kapow!"; an essay-book, "The Delighted States," winner of a Somerset Maugham Award; and a compendium of translations edited for "McSweeney s." He has twice been selected as one of "Granta" s Best of Young British Novelists."
