Cambridge University Russian Society together with the Department of Slavonic Studies of Cambridge University are delighted to invite you to two events with renowned Russian intellectual, writer, poet and journalist Dmitry Bykov:
The talk will be followed by a reception with wine and nibbles.
Language: English and Russian
Being one of the most prolific modern Russian writers, in recent years Dmitry Bykov has gained some recognition for his biography of Boris Pasternak, published in 2005. The biography broke with prior works in its account of Doctor Zhivago, and it earned Bykov the 2006 National Bestseller (NatsBest) and Great Book (Большая Книга) awards. He later wrote biographies of Maksim Gorky and Bulat Okudzhava. In 2011, National Bestseller Award was again given to Dmitry Bykov for his novel “Ostromov, or the Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” set in the 1920s Leningrad.
As a journalist and critic, Bykov has been writing for the magazine Ogoniok since 1993. He has also periodically run a show on the radio station Echo of Moscow, running at least until early 2008. Earlier, he was one of the hosts of an influential TV show Vremechko.
In 2011, online video project “Poet i grazhdanin” (“A poet and a citizen”), later renamed as “Grazhdanin poet”, created by Dmitry Bykov and actor Mikhail Efremov, has become increasingly popular among the Internet users, further expanding into radio and press.
See you on 12 and 13 October!
