Terekhov’s 'fine satire' as it was noted by The Guardian was compared by The Moscow Times to that of Saltykov-
A professional journalist, Alexander Terekhov has contributed to Ogonek, a top Russian magazine, and worked for the editorial teams of various publications. During his time at the newspaper Top Secret, Terekhov came across an item about two youngsters who perished in 1943 on the Stone Bridge in Moscow. He first featured the story in one of his short works, but later on embarked on a quest for the truth that lasted several years. The outcome of Terekhov’s research provided the premise for his novel The Stone Bridge, eventually winning him the Big Book Award in 2009.
Alexander Terekhov has published several novels and short stories, which have been translated into English, French, German and other languages.
