Aleksei Lukyanov was born in 1976 near the town of Solikamsk in the Urals. He studied at the Solikamsk Teacher-training College, his studies interrupted by army service. Subsequently he changed many occupations and finally chose the profession of a smith. He is a prolific author with several short novels and a great number of short stories to his name published in the leading literary journals and hailed by critics for their ingenious use of the language and intricately woven allusions.” (Book Review) Lukyanov is twice finalist of the Debut Prize and winner of the New Pushkin Prize for innovative treatment of Russian literary traditions.”

Critics unanimously praised his prose for its masterful, finely chiseled style based on brilliant counterpoints like a virtuoso music piece.” Here realism is bordering on phantasmagoria a striking sample of new-generation psychological prose.”
