Aleksandr Ivanovich Kuprin was a Russian writer, pilot, explorer and adventurer who is perhaps best known for his story The Duel 1905. Other well known works include Moloch 1896, Olesya 1898, Junior Captain Rybnikov 1906, Emerald 1907, and The Garnet Bracelet 1911. Vladimir Nabokov styled him the Russian Kipling for his stories about pathetic adventure-seekers, who are often neurotic and vulnerable. Kuprin died during the spring of 1938 in Leningrad and is interred near his fellow writers at the Literaturskiye Mostki in the Volkovo Cemetery in Leningrad. A minor planet 3618 Kuprin, discovered by Soviet astronomer Nikolai Stepanovich Chernykh in 1979 is named after him.
