Ivan Gontcharoff

Ivan Gontcharoff (1812-1891) was a Russian novelist of slender output - three novels, some short stories and a volume of travel notes. Oblomov, his second novel, is his best known work. His first novel, A Common Story (reissued by Faber Finds) was first published in 1847, and his third, The Precipice in 1869. His life was uneventful, most of it spent working in the Civil Service and Censor's Office.
