1. He was male.
2. A modernist writer in Soviet Russia, he was prosecuted by the Stalinist regime. He died in a camp, not more than 50 years old, probably younger. This must have been in the 1930's or 40's.
3. One of his book was translated into Danish a few years ago. It was reviewed in Danish newspaper Politiken. (My memory of this review is the sole source of the info I have.)
4. Here's a (non-verbatim) quote from this book: "Whenever I meet someone, I feel like punching him in the face. It feels so nice to give people a good beating". (This is not a verbatim quote.)
