Dmitry Bykov is a journalist, poet, critic, radio personality, novelist, and one of the few figures in contemporary Russia who can be called a public intellectual. His strong opinions on politics, history, literature, film, education, and mass media resonate across a broad spectrum of reform-minded society and galvanize debates on a variety of topics. At the same time, his mischievously artistic personality is expressed in fizzy poetic improvisations in Moscow's intellectual clubs. Bykov's recent political satires in verse, Poet and Citizen, weave together civic traditions of prerevolutionary Russian intelligentsia and postmodernist cosmopolitan creativity. His book on Boris Pasternak, the author of Dr. Zhivago, is one of the longest bestselling biographies to have come out in Russia in the last decade.
