The New Review was founded in 1942 by the famous writer Mark Aldanov and poet Mikhail Zetlin in collaboration with Ivan Bunin. For decades this publication has been a cultural center of Russia Abroad. Among its authors were Nobel laureates Ivan Bunin, Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Joseph Brodsky, as well as plethora of the best-known writers of Russian literature in exile and Soviet Samizdat. Their names have been forever engraved into the very memory of the streets of New York.
