Voronin, Sergei Alekseevich


Born June 30 (July 13), 1913, in Liubim, now in Yaroslavl Oblast. Soviet Russian writer; member of the CPSU since 1947.

Voronin has worked as a lathe operator, railroad engineer, and journalist. During the years 1956-64 he was assistant editor and then editor in chief of the journal Neva. Voronin’s first book was a collection of short stories entitled Meetings (1947). The writer addresses himself to the acute problems of life and morality among Soviet people in the novel On One’s Own Land (books 1-2, 1948-52), the novella Useless Glory (1955) about the people of a kolkhoz village, and the novel Two Lives (1962) about a group of prospectors. By the nature of his talent Voronin is a writer of short stories and novellas. His manner of writing is laconic and psychologically capacious, as in the collections of short stories The House Across the Way (1954), Into the Flood (1958), The Second Color (1958), Waiting for a Miracle (1968), and A Romance Without Love (1968). Voronin has been awarded the Order of the Badge of Honor and medals.
