Russians in America: The Third Wave


In 1981 and 1982 Abstracts of Soviet and East European Émigré Periodical Literature, which has become Зарубежная Периодическая Печать на Русском Языке: Ежеквартальный реферативный журнал listed over twenty Russian periodicals or newspapers published in the United States. The names below draw in part on that list. There is a website at the University of Minnesota that lists Russian serials in America. I provide a link to that site, but it extends only to 1979 and thus does not cover the most productive period of the Third Wave. Another invaluable resource is The Russian Emigration: Journals and Miscellanea 1981-1995. General Index of Articles. (Paris-Moscow, 2005). / Русская эмиграция. Журналы и сборники на русском языке 1981-1995. Сводный указатель статей.



Abstracts of Soviet and East European Émigré Periodical Literature.


Established in 1981 which has become Зарубежная Периодическая Печать на Русском Языке: Ежеквартальный реферативный журнал .




The only Jewish Monthly in Russian read worldwide published since 1981. It had survived into the new century. Sponsored by CHAMAH, a Jewish relief organization. [Some original copies are in Bremen].





Mentioned by Yevgeny Rubin (Евгений Рубин) in his book as publishing fifteen issues. Where is it? (p. 435).

Часть речи


NO. 1 (1980). Published by Silver Age Publishing. Editors include Vail' (Вайль), Genis (Генис), Dovlatov (Довлатов), Losev (Лосев), Gennadij Shmakov (Геннадий Шмаков) and Liudmila Shtern (Людмила Штерн). The editor-publisher was Grigory Poijak (Григорий Поляк). Opens with a poem by Brodsky from his cycle "Часть речи " which gives the journal its name. Poliak was the force behind the Silver Age Publishing House. His archives are now housed at Amherst.


Not actually a journal of the Third Wave, published since 1999 in Moscow. (At Princeton Vol. I is dated 2001. Paris, SPb). The journal does, however, document the emigration.

The journal's recording secretary, Irina Rikter (Ирина Риктер), decries Russian nationalism. She argues for Ukrainian liberation. (This position was likely not popular in the larger Russian community).

Литературный Курьер / The Literary Courier

Edited Mikhail Morgulis (Михаил Моргулис). 1982-1983, No. 1-10. New York, then Chicago. (Green Library, Stanford; Bremen has a few issues). Литературный Курьер begins publication in January 1982 with issue NO. 1 (there is no actual date on the issue). The editor in chief was Morgulis and most of the original staff of Литературное Зарубежье joined him, including Julia Trioll, as Staff editor. Listed as The Literary Courier, 106 Rivington Street, New York, NY 10002 (212) 932-8266. Six issues are dated 1982. 1983 begins with No. 7 which announces the SUNY Stonebroke conference for April 8, 1983 on Russian Literature Today. No 8 reported on the conference, including the speech by Morgulis on pp. 2, 3, 22. BY issue No 10 the publication (along with Morgulis) had moved to Illinois. No 10 is normally listed as the final issue, but the jouranl was resurrected in 1986 for several additional numbers . Listen to an interview with Mikhail Morgulis in Russian about the journal."

No. 1 {1982}, pp. 4, 5 6. "Кто мы такие: литературные записи." by Naum Korzhavin (Наум Коржавин).

No. 2 (12 January 1982). p. 1 Photo of Литературный вечер в Нью-Йорке " Present include N. Beljavina (Н. Белявина), I. Elagin (И. Елагин), N. Korzhavin (Н. Коржавин), M. Morgulis (М. Моргулис), L. Rzhevskii (Л. Ржевский), A. Sedykh (А. Седых), V. Sinkevich (В. Синкевич, of Philadelphia Enquirer). p. 9 article by L. Navrozov (Л. Наврозов), "Один к одному."


Литературное Зарубежье/ Literary Frontiers

Intended originally as a monthly the editorial board listed Professors Robert Belknap and Leonid Rzhevsky (Леонид Ржевский). From 1980-1982, No. 1-20 under the editorship of Mikhail Morgulis. Interview with Morgulis in Russian about the journal. Later it would be replaced by or superseded by Литературный Курьер. (Green Library, Stanford; Bremen has a few issues). The first issue was sixteen pages in newspaper like format. Vol. 1, p. 2 "В Америке людей из России достаточно, интерес к литературе велик, книг русских очень много, а газет и журналов явно недостаточно." The paper also reported on the Club of Russian Writers in New York(Клуб Русских Писателей в Нью-Йорке), and printed Dovlatov's Иностранец. It was clearly an attempt to establish an American version of Литературная Газета. It also announced the Almanakh-80 (Альманах 80) under the editorship of Viktor Urin (Виктор Урин). Vol. 9-10 a double issue, has an article by Eduard Shtein (Эдуард Штейн) "Если у тебя есть фонтан..." contains sharply critical reaction to the Almanakh-80. (Russian émigrés, at least from an American cultural perspective, lacked a sense of measure or civility in choosing to attack one another.} Issue 11-12. 1981 makes an attempt to organize a Русско-американская ассоциация писателей и художников. Did it ever emerge?

By issue 15-16, 1981, 1981 the head editor is Pavel Leonidov (Павел Леонидов). Mikhail Morgulis had been let go at the end of 1980. Morgulis went on to edit Литературный курьер.

A curious bibliographical note. Some libraries list Литературный курьер as a continuation of Литературное зарубежье. This is not completely true, a statement published by Новое Русское Слово claims the demise of ЛЗ which actually continued issues 13-14, and 15-16 without Morgulis. The conflict is documented by Pavel Leonidov in issues 17-18 (1981).

By issue 19-20 January-February 1982, the issue is almost single-handedly put together by Leonidov and consisted of a diatribe against Sedykh (Седых) of НРС and Evgeny Rubin of Новая Газета.

Новый Журнал

The major journal of the Russian emigration in the United States. Still publishing today. Begun in New York in 1942, it continues to publish today. Under the leadership of Roman Gul' (Роман Гуль) it was still a home in the 1980s for members of the so-called Second Wave. Roman Gul', editor of the journal for many of the first years of The Third wave cites with pride a number of writers who published in НЖ ,(Я унес Россию, Апология эмиграции. T. III: Россия и Америка (M: 2001), including Solzhenitsyn (Солженицын), V. Kreid (В. Крейд), D. Bobyshev (Д. Бобышев), A. Shepievker (А. Шепивкер), and others, but there is also a distinct lack of names such as Dovlatov (Довлатов), Aleshkovsky (Алешковский), Limonov (Лимонов), Sokolov (Соколов). The Third Wave found it hard to break into the established literary establishment, and because of alternative opportunities that abounded in the early 1980s were not hampered by their failure to grace the pages of Новый Журнал. Today the journal is edited by Marina Adamovich (Марина Адамович) and available on-line.

European and Israeli Journals

Many of the Russian writers living in the United States published frequently in the leading European journals of the emigration. They too must be considered at some level, for the writers of the emigration once outside the Soviet Union recognized no political or geographical boundaries. Some of the key journals included.


Paris 1929-1988.



Эхо. Литературный Журнал #1 1978. Edited by Vladimir Maksimov (Владимир Максимов) and Aleksej Xvostenko (Алексей Хвостенко). p. 3 the new editors comment" "Журнал (и все тягости, с ним связанные) предпринят нами исключительно оттого, что мы все переполнены рукописями--в основном из России. Рукописей много, русских изданий недостаточно." The issue published poems by Brodsky and material by Dovlatov, Limonov and Vagrich Baxchanian (Вагрих Бахчанян). Issue #4, 1978, pp. 118-126 has reactions to Limonov's publication in issue #3 of Секретарная тетрадь, или Дневник неудачника " by Dovlatov, Glezer, and Losev.


It had begun in 1946. In 1980 the editor in chief was N. Tarasova (Н. Тарасова). The publishing house continued to publish pocket sized copies of Russian works to be smuggled back into the Soviet Union. It also cites an interesting article on Metropol' in Grani, XXXV, #118 (1980), pp. 131-157.



Общественно политический Журнал. #1 (1982) - 1990. Munich. [in Bremen]. Ed by Vladimir Malinkovich (Владимир Маленкович). Contains an open letter of criticism of Континент. (Malinkovich had apparently been associated with t hat journal in its beginning years.


#1 (1974). Maksimov lives in Paris, Journal published by Ulstein Verlag in Berlin. p. 4 "...художественная литература, идущая в разрез идеологическим установками правящего аппарата, преследуется как уголовное преступление... .за книгу ссылают, как Иосифа Бродского, за книгу годами гонят в лагерях, как Андрея Синявского, за книгу запирают в сумасшедший дом, как Михаила Нарицу ..." P. 403 in same issue in his own Колонка реактора, Maksimov writes of Viktor Nekrasov (Виктор Некрасов): "Но ни он, никто другой из нас не покинули родину, родину мы привели сюда, с собой, в своей душе и в своем сердце. И она никогда не покинет нас, ибо мы остались верны ей до конца в самом высоком, смысле этого слова."

" 23 (1980). Article by Maksimov, "Они и мы," pp. 15-64, will give rise to a controversy. Viktor Nekrasov is editor at this time and publishing has been taken over by A. Neimanis (А. Нейманис) Buchvertrieb, Munich. Bauerrstrasse 28, Munich.

Today Kontinent is published in Paris-Moscow. The editorial board includes Marina Adamovich (Марина Адамович), Vasily Aksyonov (Василий Аксенов), Fazil Iskander (Фазиль Искандер), Naum Korzhavin (Наум Коржавин), Robert Conquest, Ernst Neizvestny (Эрнст Неизвестный), Georges Nivat.

No work to my knowledge has explored the rich material in the "thick journals" of the emigration. Brodsky considered them an essential page in Russian literature. One exception is the study by Anna Shcherbakova (Vassilieva; Анна Щербакова (Васильева) of the Monterrey Institute of Foreign Studies, in her Российская эмигрантская пресса о России: 80-90 гг. (M: 1994).
