After the Revolution, he emigrated to Paris where he became heavily involved with the emigre community there. Though he spoke French fluently and wrote his "Lenin" in French, he preferred to write most of his works in his native Russian. The subject of many of his works was political cataclysm and he published several cycles of novels on Napoleon and the Russian Revolution. Aldanov came to the US in 1941 where he founded one of the most influential emigre journals of its time in New York - Novyi Zhurnal. His current treatise "Night in Ulm. The Philosophy of Chance" was one of his last works. His books were not published in Russia where they were banned until 1989. The only copy in the trade.
