A super new translation of a perennial favourite of Russian Literature

The first significant Russian novel, A Hero of Our Time used to be either lauded and reviled upon booklet. Its dissipated hero, twenty-five-year-old Pechorin, is a gorgeous and magnetic yet nihilistic younger military officer, bored via lifestyles and detached to his many sexual conquests. Chronicling his unforgettable adventures within the Caucasus related to brigands, smugglers, squaddies, competitors, and fans, this vintage story of alienation inspired Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, and Chekhov in Lermontov's personal century, and unearths its modern day opposite numbers in Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange, the novels of Chuck Palahniuk, and the movies and performs of Neil LaBute.
