Ivan Turgenev's beautiful and subtle comedy of love in a new translation by the renowned translators, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonksy (winner of two PEN/Book-Of-The-Month Translation Awards) and the playwright/director, Richard Nelson (Tony Award, Olivier Award).
"I want...I want...I want you to want."
"We keep studying ourselves and then imagine we know other people."
"The lacework of the psychology of love which Turgenev weaves in such masterly fashion...into the peculiar design of the emotions of loving, suffering, jealous, male and female hearts."
Constantin Stanislavski, My Life in Art
