Olga Bakich's biography of Valerii Pereleshin (1913-1992) follows
the turbulent life and exquisite poetry of one of the most
remarkable Russian emigres of the twentieth century. Born in
Irkutsk, Pereleshin lived for thirty years in China and for almost
forty years in Brazil. Multilingual, he wrote poetry in Russian and
in Portuguese and translated Chinese and Brazilian poetry into
Russian and Russian and Chinese poetry into Portuguese. For many
years he struggled to accept and express his own identity as a gay
man within a frequently homophobic emigre community. His poems
addressed his three homelands, his religious struggles, and his
loves. In Valerii Pereleshin: The Life of a Silkworm, Bakich delves
deep into Pereleshin's poems and letters to tell the rich life
story of this underappreciated writer.
