Ivan Bunin
Birth: Oct. 22, 1870
Death: Nov. 8, 1953

Author. He won the 1933 Nobel Prize for Literature, the first Russian to receive the award. Conservative in style, his fiction has a closer kinship to the 19th Century Russian masters (especially that of his friend Anton Chekhov) than to the modernist experiments of his own period. He is best known for his tale "The Gentleman from San Francisco" (1914), about a businessman who sacrifices everything for material success and is then unable to enjoy it. His other works include the novels "The Village" (1910), "Dry Valley" (1911), "Mitya's Love" (1925), "The Well of Days" (1930), and "Lika" (1939), the short story collection "Dark Avenues" (1943), and two volumes of memoirs, "Dark Days" (1926) and "Memories and Portraits" (1950). Bunin was born in Voronezh, Russia. He settled in Paris in 1920, where he was regarded as the leading Russian emigre writer. Apart from his fiction Bunin also wrote poetry and translated many British and American authors into the Russian language. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
