Vasily Grossman (1905-1964) worked as a reporter for the army newspaper Red Star during World War II. His vivid yet sober "The Hell of Treblinka," was translated and used as testimony in the Nuremberg trials. His novels Life and Fate and Everything Flows, and a collection of stories, journalism, and essays, The Road, are all published by NYRB Classics. Robert Chandler's translations from Russian include several works by Vasily Grossman, Nikolai Leskov's Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, and Alexander 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. Chandler is also the editor of Russian Short Stories from Pushkin to Buida and the author of a biography of Pushkin.
