He has also compiled three anthologies for Penguin Classics: of Russian short stories, of Russian magic tales and, with Boris Dralyuk and Irina Mashinski, The Penguin Book of Russian Poetry. He is a co-translator of three volumes of memoirs and stories by Teffi.  His short biography of Alexander Pushkin is published by Pushkin Press.  He runs a monthly translation workshop at Pushkin House (Bloomsbury).
