About the Author

Vladimir Alexeyevich Gilyarovsky (1853-1935) was an adventurer, raconteur, poet, actor, gourmand, and an indefatigable writer. He is widely acclaimed as "the grandfather of Russian journalism," and wrote hundreds of sketches, reports and expos�s. Moscow and Muscovites is considered his masterwork and a treasured classic among Russians, who know him best by the affectionate nickname, "Uncle Gilya." His chronicle of Moscow captured the great city in a literary chrysalis just as it was being ravaged by the Bolshevik Thermidor.
