A Month in the Country

By Ivan Turgenev Translated by Richard Nelson, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky

Paperback £16.99

A week before her thirtieth birthday, Natalya's life as a dutiful wife and mother is upended as the arrival of her son's charming new tutor unleashes a whirlwind of suppressed emotions in her peaceful household.

Turgenev's A Month in the Country is one of the permanent works in the Russian dramatic repertory. This fresh translation of the play is a collaboration between renowned playwright Richard Nelson and the foremost contemporary translators of classic Russian literature, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky.
