Zalygin Sergey - Russian writer
Zalygin, Sergey Pavlovich - russian writer and editor (b. Dec. 6, 1913, Durasovka, Russia—d. April 19, 2000, Moscow, Russia), was a respected Soviet novelist and the first non-Communist Party editor in chief of the monthly literary magazine Novy Mir; during Zalygin's tenure (1986–98) at Novy Mir he took advantage of Pres. Mikhail Gorbachev's glasnost policy and published many previously banned writings, including Boris Pasternak's Dr. Zhivago, works by Vladimir Nabokov and Joseph Brodsky, and, after a long struggle with the censors, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago.
