Description

A nineteenth century Russian literature classic that "can still make new readers laugh and gasp with recognition over timeless human foibles." (The Guardian)

An Ordinary Story describes the coming of age of Alexander Aduyev, a romantic young man from the provinces who moves to Petersburg in search of love and a career. Psychologically acute in its delineation of Aduyev's relationship with his successful and unsentimental mentor uncle, this is a work of complexity and great charm. Featuring a stage adaptation, this edition of An Ordinary Story will enhance Goncharov's reputation as one of the legends of Russian literary history.

"The conversations between Alexander and his uncle are witty and gripping, the various love affairs poignant and credible, several minor characters are deliciously comic, and the whole book well worth rediscovery." -- The Washington Post
