Ivan Turgenev is often unfairly overshadowed by the looming giants of 19th century Russian literature, Tolstoy and Dostoevsky. Though they were contemporaries, Turgenev can't really be compared to them, as they worked on a large scale and he is more a miniaturist, delving into the psychology and motivations of his protagonists in a nuanced, insightful manner that has something in common with Chekov. While "Fathers and Sons" is regarded as his masterpiece, this collection of six stories is worth reading. Highlights are the poignant, nostalgic title story and his grim reworking of "King Lear."
