Andrei Makine Book and Novel

Andrei Makine - Author


Andreï Makine was born in Siberia in 1957, and taught at the University of Novgorod. In 1987 he left the Soviet Union and sought asylum in Paris, where he lived rough before finding teaching work. His first novel was published in France in 1990, once he’d pretended he’d only translated it from another Russian’s original. His third was published under his own name and Olga Arbélina’s Crime is his fifth.
