The Golovlyov Family



By Mikhail Saltykov-Shchedrin.

An intimate portrait of a declining family after the abolition of serfdom. Parts of the action and the characters keep appearing in my mind even after the novel has been read. The inability to truly communicate and feel empathy seems to be the most recognisable common trait among the characters.
