(From the publisher):
tells the story of sixteen-year-old Vladimir's first bruising brush with love. The boy falls under the spell of Zinaida, a capricious and imperious beauty who delights in toying with her many suitors. Turgenev movingly details Vladimir's overheated emotional state as he blunders toward the knowledge that will shatter his innocence.
