Turgenev wrote Mumu with such vivid images and reflections of the state of the tsarist Russia that this piece together with his other stories was credited with having influenced public opinion in favour of the abolition of serfdom in 1861. Turgenev was the first of the great Russian novelists to win fame abroad. One of his great admirers was Henry James, who wrote that Turgenevs merit of form is of the first order The story featured in this release is relatively unknown in English speaking markets despite being a school textbook classic back in Russia. This revised edition of Mumu was first published in London in English in as audio book in 2010. The audio book produced very strong response from listeners. A story great in emotion and meaning that makes you want to read his other books. What a successful introduction to a great writer, wrote Philippe Felsenhardt (USA) in his review. This edition has whet my appetite for Turgenev on the page, wrote another reviewer Joseph Belliveau (Canada). Other reviewers wrote that the story brought them close to tears and that they would very much enjoy reading it in paper format. So the paper edition of this story with annotations in both original Russian and English languages is hereby produced to satisfy demand of enthusiastic readers. It is remarkable how new media such as audio book extends life of original paper book. New does not have to mean the end of traditional, at least for now.
