Publisher's Summary

Roman napisan ot lica molodogo pisatelya Vani, mnogie podrobnosti zhizni kotorogo avtobiografichny. Vanya vospityvalsya v sem'e bednogo pomeshchika Ihmenyova, vmeste s ego docher'yu Natashey. Bolee sostoyatel'nyy sosed Ihmenyova po usad'be, knyaz' Valkovskiy, oceniv hozyaystvennost' Ihmenyova, naznachaet ego svoim upravlyayushchim, a pozdnee i prosit ego nekotoroe vremya rukovodit' vospitaniem svoego syna Alyoshi.

Odnako, vskore posle priezda Alyoshi v dom Ihmenyova voznikayut sluhi o tom, chto Ihmenyov hochet zhenit' Alyoshu na svoey docheri, vsyacheski pooshchryaya ih otnosheniya, a takzhe ne vpolne chestno upravlyaet imeniem knyazya, prisvaivaya sebe nekotorye summy. Knyaz' nachinaet process protiv Ihmenyova. Delo oslozhnyaetsya tem, chto Alyosha i Natasha Ihmenyova nadumali zaklyuchit' soyuz vopreki vole svoih roditeley. Vanya lyubit Natashu, i beryotsya vo vsyom sodeystvovat' ey.

Drugaya vetv' romana svyazana s 13-letney devochkoy podrostkom Elenoy ili Nelli (eyo obraz Dostoevskiy zaimstvoval u Dikkensa), kotoruyu Vanya spasaet iz ruk zhestokoy opekunshi. On priyutil eyo u sebya. Istoriya eyo materi svyazana v nekotoryh mestah s Natashey.

Roman byl vstrechen kritikami sderzhanno. Vozmozhno, ehto ob"yasnyalos' nastorozhennost'yu k pisatelyu, tol'ko chto vernuvshemusya iz dolgoletney ssylki. Tol'ko demokraticheskiy zhurnal "Sovremennik", ukazav na ser'yoznye nedostatki romana, v celom vstretil ego polozhitel'no.
