Summary (From the publisher):

Russian literature's first major prose novel, this gripping work was a primary influence on Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, and other great 19th-century writers. The author drew upon his personal Byronic exploits to create these tales of treachery, abductions, and sexual intrigue.

Centered on the escapades of Pechorin, a dashing young officer and the hero of the title, the book consists of a series of interconnected short stories which reflect his cynical but passionate worldview. Set amid the rugged Caucasian wilderness -- an exotic land populated by bandits and smugglers, transplanted society women, and lawless freebooters -- the novel offers a thrilling blend of brutality, elegance, and enduring romance.
