"Nothing links person to person like the frequent passage from hand to hand of a good book."

I found this book recently on a bookswap site and brought it to Florida with me on vacation to give to booklady331. Alas, our schedules don't match up for this week, but I'm going to mail the book, and hope I can see her next summer. This book was first published in 1840 in Moscow, and was later translated into other languages. This particular copy was printed in English but actually was printed in the old USSR.

In five linked episodes, Lermontov builds up the portrait of a man caught up in and expressing the sickness of his times. A marvelous novel and an early landmark in Russian literature, A Hero of Our Time served as an inspiration for many later Russian authors, including Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky.
