V.S. Pritchett, our foremost contemporary literary critic, himself a master of the short story, considers Turgenev's writing in depth, offering new insights into such works as A Month in the Country, First Love, Torrents of Spring, A Nest of Gentlefolk, Smoke, and of course, Turgenev's masterpiece, Fathers and Sons. The Gentle Barbarian is the work of one literary master about another; Pritchett's interpretation of his subject is at once subtle and charming, intimate and profound. - Jacket

Having lived in Spain for four years during the 1920s, Pritchett is well placed to deliver such a report, and his resulting narrative is both well informed and delightfully written
