A Nest of Gentlefolk and Other Stories (riverrun editions)

A Nest of Gentlefolk and Other Stories (riverrun editions)

This riverrun edition of Turgenev’s most accomplished stories contains A Nest of Gentlefolk, A Quiet Backwater, First Love, and A Lear of the Steppes – the defining masterpieces of his career. Justly celebrated as a novelist, playwright, and poet, these stories encapsulate his skills: in the scope and span of his depiction of nineteenth-century provincial life; in his nuanced portraiture of the vivid quirks of human character; and in the elusive poise of his narrative style – all artfully captured in Jessie Coulson’s subtly brilliant translation.

Presented by riverrun editions with an exclusive preface by award-winning translator Boris Dralyuk.
