MEDIA REVIEWS

"This remarkable Russian novella combines contemporary social themes, elements of the author's extraordinary autobiography, and the controversial 'woman's question' of nineteenth-century culture." --Michael R. Katz, translator and editor of the Norton Critical Editions Notes from Underground, Fathers and Sons, and Tolstoy's Short Fiction


"Kolchevska and Zirin's translation is as lively and readable as the original work. Kolchevska's introduction and footnotes make the novel accessible to all who are interested in discovering more about women's involvement in the socialist movements that would profoundly alter later Russian history." --B. M. Sutcliffe, University of Pittsburgh
