Fortune's Fool

Fortune's FoolT01285662716
This satire of nineteenth-century Russian society is an explosive family drama played out over the course of twenty-four hours. A pair of newlyweds arrive at their country estate to be welcomed by Kuzovkin, the penniless gentleman-in-residence. Their wealthy and mischievous neighbour Tropatchov calls by for a seemingly innocent celebratory lunch. Fuelled by champagne the proceedings degenerate, leading to a shocking revelation with far-reaching consequences.
Author Ivan Turgenev
