Written by the first Russian author to achieve international acclaim , Ivan Sergeevich Turgunev. Translated by Edward Garnett to English and subsequently published in 1899, this collection of short stories is a depiction of several Russian characters, each of whom has their own story to tell. Pyetushkov, the first story, is about the art of a young man who has the unrestrained resolve to contradict the French’s flattering remarks thrown at each other. This compilation is a fascinating view towards the life, struggles and values of Russians.
