Well missed a couple of book a day posts so on out of print I’ve choose this old soviet English translation of Pushkin I found second hand a few years ago .I’m sure this edition of Dubrovsky is out of print it’s from 50’s but the story as a single story is only available as a kindle book or a very expensive paperback on amazon here .

    Read a more newish edition of the same title by Hesperus Press around six years back. As usual, great writing by Pushkin.

    Well that’s a keeper! I just read something about Dubrovsky that made it sound so compelling–I think it was in Wendy Lesser’s book Why I Read.
