Product description

Anna Petrovna rules the ancestral estate of the Golovlev family with an iron hand. Around her swarm her family; her alcoholic sons, dissipated grandchildren and degenerate husband. But, in his darkened study, her son Porfiry - 'Judas the Bloodsucker' - schemes for an overthrow of power. In this powerful novel, the great Russian satirist presents a stark portrait of the Russian gentry sapped by generations of idleness and social irrelevance.
