Golovlyov Family by Natalie Duddington
Book DescriptionSearingly 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.""

Author Biography - Natalie Duddington
Mikhail Evgrafovich Saltykov, pen-name Shchedrin, (1826-1889) is known as Russia s greatest satirist. Born into the landed gentry, he worked as a civil servant while writing and editing for radical journals. 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. Shchedrin showed his talents in the"Fables, The History of a Town," and his masterpiece, "The Golovlyov Family." James Woodis a novelist, staff critic at"The New Yorker"magazine, andProfessor of the Practice of Literary Criticism atHarvard University."
