Fathers and Sons is a major work of nineteenth-century fiction and one of the most acclaimed Russian novels of all time. The story follows the relationships between a father, his sons Pavel and Arkady, and Arkady’s nihilist friend Bazarov. Against the backdrop of a growing cultural schism between old and new ideas and generational conflict, the drama around family ties, love, heartache, and religion plays out in this insightful, compassionate, and exhilerating tale. This edition includes a brilliant essay by Henry James on Ivan Turgenev and a detailed biographical timeline.

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818-1883) was a Russian novelist, dramatist, short-story writer, and translator. He is considered to be a founder of the Russian realistic novel and ranks as one of the greatest stylists in the Russian language.

Henry James (1843–1916) was an American-British author. He is regarded as a key transitional figure between literary realism and literary modernism, and is considered by many to be among the greatest novelists in the English language.

“A Russian masterpiece, one written so beautifully and with such economy, that when you finish reading it you feel a little shaken and a little stirred.”
—NPR

“A profound tale, a gentle tale, starred with two simple-hearted but imaginative love-stories.”
—Sinclair Lewis
