Product Description

About the Author

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev 1818-1883, a Russian novelist, short story writer, and playwright. His short story collection entitled The Hunting Sketches, is a milestone of Russian Realism, and his novel Fathers and Sons is regarded as one of the major works of 19th-century fiction. Turgenev studied literature, philosophy and philology at the Universities of Moscow, St Petersburg and Berlin and in 1879 received honorary doctorate from the University of Oxford. Turgenev's artistic purity made him a favourite of like-minded novelists of the next generation, such as Henry James and Joseph Conrad.

"If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin"

"I agree with no one's opinion. I have some of my own"

"Every man's happiness is built on the unhappiness of another"

Ivan Turgenev

Format: Audio CD
Just as Max Bollinger's readings of Ivan Turgenev's THE HUNTING SKETCHES Book 1 are captivating, for this reader/listener Book 2 is even better, Especially THE DISTRICT DOCTOR, a tightly woven story about a physician who shares a tale of falling in love with a young patient. Somewhat different or at least more dramatic than the other stories contained in Turgenev's short story collection, the characters are so well defined and the situations as the physician describes them are so touching that the story seeps into the mind and remains there. Despite the label as being a 'sketch', this story is a novella by our standards.

It is a fine choice to complete this audio book with the other story from THE HUNTING SKETCHES, Kassyan of Fair Springs - a quiet reverie of nature and the impact it has on the writer. The work is more a meditation than a story and Bollinger treats it in a different manner: this story is delivered almost as an otherworldly sigh and conjures images not only from Turgenev's writing but also from Bollinger's reading that make it very lyrical. Grady Harp, July 11
