Writer Vasily Aksyonov Passes Away

After a long illness the noted Russian writer Vasily Aksyonov has died, aged 76, in Moscow.
      From January last year he had been staying at hospital. Back then he had a heart attack, which resulted in the apoplexy of the right side of the body and some speech disturbance.
      Vasily Aksyonov became one of the most well-known young soviet writers in the 195060s thanks to his story Colleagues (Kollegi, 1960) and the novel Ticket to the Stars (Zvyozdny bilet, 1961).
      In 1979 he participated in creation of the Metropol almanac. The scandal that burst after its release made Aksyonov leave the Writers Union and some time later this country also, and immigrate to the USA. In the States Vasily Aksyonov wrote, in particular, the famous trilogy Generations of Winter (Moskovskaya Saga, 1994).
