Lipatov Vil Vladimirovich

He was born in Chita on April 10, 1927 in an intelligent and educated family. His father worked in the local newspaper Zabaikalsky Rabochiy, his mother was a teacher of Russian language and literature in an ordinary school.

In 1942, after school, Vil Lipatov saw himself as an officer, so he entered the Military Engineering Institute in Novosibirsk, but then dramatically changed plans. It was then that he showed his talent as a writer, and he transferred to the Pedagogical Institute of Tomsk for the historical department.

While at the junior courses, Vil Lipatov begins to work in the local newspaper Krasnoye Znamya, where his very first stories, "Two in Vests", "The Airman's Fireman" (1956), etc., were published.


In 1958, he was back in his native Chita, where he began to work as a literary secretary of the newspaper publishing house "At the fighting post." And from 1964 to 1966 he was a special correspondent for the newspaper Sovetskaya Rossiya. But then fate threw him to Bryansk (in 1965). In 1967, he found himself in Moscow, where he worked in the newspapers Izvestia, Literaturnaya Gazeta and Pravda.

In recent years, he was secretary of the board of the Writers' Union of the USSR. Lipatov was married to Maria Kozhevnikova - the daughter of the famous writer V. Kozhevnikov.

Ville Lipatov: books

The first book - the story of Lipatov "Six" - was published in 1958. It was written in the spirit of Soviet "production" prose. The plot describes how brave drivers during a powerful storm could through the taiga to conduct the necessary logging facilities.

In overcoming difficulties, a person grows stronger, grows up and grows as a person, especially when it happens in the work collective. The theme of the labor feat and the relationship of the individual with other people determines the subjects of the following novels by Vilya Lipatov: "My burden does not draw," "Captain of the" Bold "(1959)," Deaf Mint "(1960)," Tooth of Wisdom "and" Rod "(1961)," The Death of Yegor Suzun "and" Black Yar "(1963)," The Earth is not on whales "(1966).

Literary glory

In 1964, Vil Lipatov wrote the story "Alien", which sparked a heated discussion among critics, as it touched on the psychology of the modern bourgeois. However, the All-Union fame to him, as a writer, brought a series of stories about the operative-authorized Aniskin (1967-1968).

The works of Lida Warxin (1968), The Legend of the Director Pronchatov (1969) and others very clearly presented the style and direction of the author's prose-essay-documentary. Social conflicts, the images of heroes and, most importantly, the trust in a person who is always able to correct and adjust his relations with colleagues in the process of teamwork and apply the right approach to any problem is the main theme of the author's works.

Social criticism

Gradually, its relevance, simplicity and clarity to the factual narratives led to increased social criticism.

In the late sixties, Wil Lipatov was one of the first writers who specifically hinted at the ills of society on the examples of his heroes - honest Aniskin and engineer-manager Pronchatov, forced to wriggle out and violate public rules in order to benefit people. This approach immediately caused polemical attacks against the village investigator and a kind of enterprising Siberian Ostap Bender.


Further, Lipatov undertakes to write novels "And this is all about him" (1974) and "Igor Savvovich" (1977). They describe the shadow economy and bureaucracy, and therefore the fatalities of the positive hero of the young Komsomol member Yevgeny Stoletov and the inevitability of the defeat of Igor Savvovich.

But in the works "Even before the war" (1971), "The Life of Vanyushka Murzin," eternal human values are established - honesty, work, true love, a close family.

In the work "Gray Mouse" (1970), the author with great sadness and even pain watches the fate of the weakly characteristic Semyon Balandin, who destroys his "I" with vodka. This hero resembles Shukshin's truth-seekers. He can not find application to himself, his inventions and projects, and therefore he is asleep.
