"Turgenev is the novelist of the moments after meetings and the moments before
partings."V. S. Pritchett
Set in Baden-Baden, Smoke is Ivan Turgenev's most cosmopolitan novel. First published in 1867,
it is an exquisite study of politics and society and an enduringly poignant love story. Smoke, with
its European setting, barbed wit, and visionary call for Russia to look west, became the center of a famous
philosophical breach between Turgenev and Dostoevsky.
A balanced and objective commentator, sensitive, intelligent, Turgenev is dedicated to the highest claims of
art. His work lives for its universal qualities of understanding and devotion to aesthetic standards.
