Publisher Comments:

Turgenev?s timeless tale of generational collision, in a sparkling new translation

When Arkady Petrovich returns home from college, his father finds his eager, naïve son changed almost beyond recognition, for the impressionable Arkady has fallen under the powerful influence of the friend he has brought home with him. A self-proclaimed nihilist, the ardent young Bazarov shocks Arkady?s father with his criticisms of the landowning way of life and his determination to overthrow the traditional values of contemporary society. Vividly capturing the hopes and fears, regrets and delusions of a changing Russia around the middle of the nineteenth century, Fathers and Sons is Ivan Turgenev?s masterpiece.

Synopsis:

When a young graduate returns home he is accompanied, much to his father and uncle's discomfort, by a strange friend "who doesn't acknowledge any authorities, who doesn't accept a single principle on faith." Turgenev's masterpiece of generational conflict shocked Russian society when it was published in 1862 and continues today to seem as fresh and outspoken as it did to those who first encountered its nihilistic hero.

About the Author

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818-1883) was the first Russian writer to gain a wide reputation in Europe. He wrote many novels, plays, short stories, and novellas, of which First Love (1860) is the most famous.

Peter Carson learned Russian during National Service in the Navy, and at home-his mother's family left Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution.

Rosamund Bartlett lectures on Russian and music at the University of Durham.

Tatiana Tolstaya is co-host of the Russian television show The School for Scandal and the author of the novel The Slynx/Kys as well as several short story collections.
