Viktor Ivanovich Likhonosov (Russian: Ви́ктор Ива́нович Лихоно́сов, April 30, 1936, Topki, Kemerovo Oblast, Soviet Union) is a Soviet, Russian writer, laureate of the Russian State Prize (1988), the International Mikhail Sholokhov prize and the first Yasnaya Polyana Prize (2003).

Biography[edit]

In the 1960s Likhonosov, who was close to the Village Prose movement, was highly praised by Alexander Tvardovsky who published his debut stories in Novy mir. Tvardovsky saw the author as a Soviet heir to Ivan Bunin. In the mid-1970s, through Yuri Kazakov, Likhonosov met Boris Zaitsev and Georgy Adamovich and became deeply involved in researching the history of Russian emigration. Unwritten Memoirs: Our Little Paris, a 1986 novel dealing with the modern history of Russian Cossacks living abroad, is seen as his major work. Likhonosov resides in Krasnodar where he edits the literary magazine Rodnaya Kubanh.[1][2]
