Biography's Source: IBList user synopsis

Pseudonym used by Andrei Sinyavsky, a Soviet writer and literary critic, for a number of works published illicitly in the West, including the provocative essay On Socialist Realism and a number of unusual fantastic stories. Although the first of these works was published in 1959, the identity of the writer Abram Tertz (taken after the name of a legendary Jewish outlaw) was not discovered for several years. In 1965 Andrei Sinyavsky was arrested and in 1966 put on trial along with his friend and fellow writer Yuli Daniel. After several years of imprisonment, Sinyavsky was allowed to emigrate to France, where he continued to publish, both under his real name and under the pseudonym of Tertz.
