    Great Translation

    This is the best translation of Pushkin's novel available in a mass market paperback in English. I taught a 19th century Russian literature course for several years and suffered through a couple of bad versions before I found this one. It's a novel in verse, but don't be thrown by that if you don't care for poetry. It reads quickly, and is one of the most entertaining novels written in any language--and you will find out why later Russian writers keep referring to Pushkin.
