Short biography
Unable to publish freely in the Soviet Union, Sergei Dovlatov circulated his writings through "samizdat" (underground) press, and had them smuggled into Western Europe for publication in foreign journals.  These activities caused his expulsion from the USSR in 1976. A few years later, he was able to emigrate with his family to the USA, where his sly, humorous stories became popular in The New Yorker magazine.  He also co-edited "The New American," a liberal Russian-language émigré newspaper.
