Antonina by Evgenii︠a︡ Tur( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Antonina is a poignant account of a young Russian woman whose life is shaped by the cruel neglect of her stepparents, the financial ruin of her father and later her husband, and - the centerpiece of the novel - her failed love affair with a sensitive but weak young man. This work is a previously untranslated section of a four-volume novel, The Niece, published in Russia in 1851. Patterned after the successful contemporary novels of the Bronte sisters - in fact, Tur names one character after the town of Millcote in Jane Eyre - Antonina was praised by another great nineteenth-century writer, Ivan Turgenev. Jehanne Gheith addresses the novel's continuing appeal in her illuminating introduction
Sanin : a novel by M Art︠s︡ybashev( Book )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sanin's extreme individualism greatly appealed to young people in Russia during the twilight years of the Romanov regime. "Saninism" was marked by sensualism, self-gratification, and self-destruction - and gained in credibility in an atmosphere of moral and spiritual despondency."--Jacket
Fathers and children by Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev( Book )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Turgenev focuses on Bazarov, the nihilistic hero and the first in a long literary line of angry young men, whose life in turn illuminates the social, political and philosophical issues current in contemporary Russian society

Pioneers a tale of Russian-Jewish life in the 1880s by S An-Ski( )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"S.A. An-sky's novel dramatizes the dilemmas of Jewish young people in late Tsarist Russia as they strive to throw off their traditional religious upbringing to adopt a secular and modern identity. The action unfolds in the town of M. in the Pale of Settlement, where an engaging cast of characters wrestles with cultural and social issues. Their exploits culminate in helping a young Jewish woman evade an arranged marriage and a young Russian woman leave home so she can pursue her studies at a European university. This startling novel reveals the tensions and triumphs of coming of age in a revolutionary time"--Provided by publisher

Devils by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Recording )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Based on a true event, in which a young revolutionary was murdered by his comrades, The Possessed provoked a storm of controversy for its harsh depiction of a ruthless band of Russian intellectuals, atheists, socialists, anarchists, and other radicals who attempt to incite the population of a small provincial town to revolt against the government. In contrast to Dostoevsky's savage portrait of these radicals and the violent ideas that have possessed them like demons, the author expresses great sympathy for workers and other ordinary people ill-served by those who presume to speak in their name
