By Ivan Goncharov
Narrated by Kevin W. Davidson / 6 hours 27 minutes

Ivan Goncharov’s masterpiece—a magnificent farce about a gentleman who spends the better part of his life in bed—brilliantly employs humor to explore the absurdities and injustices of an outmoded social order.

The book was considered a satire of Russian nobility whose social and economic function was increasingly questioned in mid-nineteenth century Russia. The novel was popular when it came out, and some of its characters and devices have imprinted on Russian culture and language.
