About this product
- DescriptionAn 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.
- Author BiographyIvan Goncharov (1812-1891) was one of the most important writers of the nineteenth century. He spent most of his life as a civil servant, eventually becoming a censor. In addition to An Ordinary Story and Oblomov, he published The Precipice, a novel, and The Frigate Pallada, an account of his travels on an 1853 international expedition.
