Andrei Sinyavsky (1925-1997) was a great satirical novelist and literary scholar, a symbol and a legend for the 1960s generation of Russian intellectuals. His teaching at the Sorbonne gave rise to Ivan the Fool. It was his prosecution for 'anti-Soviet works' which led to the founding of Index on Censorship. His aim “to be truthful with the aid of the absurd and the fantastic”, to quote his own words, links him with Gogol and Dostoyevsky, and with the Russian experi¬mental writers of the 1920s.
