Malcolm

Malcolm Macdonald was born in Japan and raised in Mexico, Spain and Portugal before coming to America for college. After graduating with a degree in Russian, he worked for the Stravinsky estate in New York, translating the composer's manuscripts and correspondence for several books by Vera Stravinksy and Robert Craft.

Through most of the 1980s Macdonald was a tour guide in the former USSR, covering the length and breadth of the country over some 50 trips. His second passion, antiquarian books, has also occupied him more or less gainfully at various times in his life, as has teaching, interpreting, writing and making furniture.

Macdonald writes in English, but also speaks Spanish, French, Portuguese and Russian, and enjoys the interplay of language and personality as he observes it in himself and others. Currently he lives in the United States.
