YEFIM ZOZULYA (1891-1941) was a journalist and writer who was born and raised in Odessa. In 1923 he founded the journal Ogonyok with the writer Mikhail Koltsov. With the start of World War II, he volunteered to serve in the artillery, then became a military correspondent. Wounded in battle, he died at the front from gangrene. Unfortunately, much of his work has been forgotten; he was a master of psychological short stories that built on the best traditions of Chekhov.
