Lazyweb Question - Russian Dissident

So I am having a spirited exchange with a few friends and the topic came up but none of us can remember the name in question - perhaps the wider Internets can help.

What is the name of this guy?

I remember reading a while back about a dissident artist/author in Soviet Russia who knew that writers who criticize Communism get disappeared by the GRU - his workaround was to write screeds praising Communism BADLY, with poorly-structured, easily-falsified logic. He couldn't be busted and sent to the gulag for praising communism, but of course, because he was an excellent writer, he got his criticism of the Kremlin in print all over Russia anyway.

Google is not particularly helpful in this sort of thing ...
