There are also extravagantly humorous tales of gangsters in the Odessa underworld. Babel lived in France periodically from 1928 to 1934. He found writing increasingly difficult in the oppressive environment of Soviet literature during the 1936. Although recognized as a major author, he was viewed with suspicion by U. S. R. authorities and published little during this period.
