‘A gentle giant', as the Goncourts called him, Turgenev emerged from the barbarous yet doting rules of a terrible mother, whose cruelties to her serfs are at the heart of his hatred of serfdom. He was saturated in femininity and could not write unless he was in love. When he freed himself from his mother, he became enslaved by the famous Spanish singer, Pauline Viardot, married to a Frenchman. He was heir to vast estates, a convinced Westerner, proud to be both European and deeply Russian, and one of the most civilized men of his time. This is his story.Victor Sawdon Pritchett (1900-1997) was born over a toyshop in 1900 and, much to his everlasting distaste, was named after Queen Victoria. A writer and critic, his is widely reputed to be one of the best short story writers of all time, with the rare ability to capture the extraordinary strangeness of everyday life. He died in 1997.

According to the author, "There has not yet been a definitive biography of Turgenev in any language. Much is mysterious and changeable in the life of a novelist who dazzled his friends by his conversation and his thousands of engaging letters. My own book is a portrait and, having no Russian, I have relied entirely on sources in English and French translation." And The Los Angeles Times has written, "Pritchett's book has all the admirable qualities that have made him one of the most distinguished of living English critics. His prose is lucid, sober, sane, his judgment is balanced. He is a critic we can trust." (Key Words: Ivan Turgenev, V. S. Pritchett, Russian Writers, Literary Criticism, Biography). book.
