Two Friends and Other Stories
Considered to be among the world’s greatest masters of fiction Turgenev’s works explored the social issues that affected Russians during the nineteenth century, most notably the peasantry and the intelligentsia. Part of the charm of his novels and stories is his sense of place and his sympathy with the rural landscapes.
The works of Ivan Turgenev that are now available on the Faber Finds list are as much a celebration of a classic Russian novelist and short-story writer as they are of the translator Constance Garnett. During her lifetime Garnett translated around 70 volumes of Russian literature that included works by Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and Chekhov as well as Turgenev.
