Golovlyov Family by Shchedrin

Book Description

Searingly hot in the summer, bitterly cold in the winter, the ancestral estate of the Golovlyov family is the end of the road. There Anna Petrovna rules with an iron hand over her servants and family-until she loses power to the relentless scheming of her hypocritical son Judas. One of the great books of Russian literature, The Golovlyov Family is a vivid picture of a condemned and isolated outpost of civilization that, for contemporary readers, will recall the otherwordly reality of Macondo in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude ."

Though he was exiled for seven years, he maintained an unflagging attack on Russia s social institutions, the new bourgeois capitalists, and the cowardice of the educated classes.
