The Classics Spin #20
Twitter hashtag: #ccspin
For this Classics spin #21, I got #5, which in my list is
It was written in 1875 by Nikolai Leskov:
Based on a true story of an early Russian missionary bishop’s trip to Eastern Siberia. During his journey he learns through example and suffering that in indigenous peoples of all cultures there is dignity that must be recognized and built upon as a foundation for Christian conversion. (Goodreads)
I’m totally thrilled, as I am in a Russian mood – well, that’s not that unusual.
I’m glad I didn’t get one of my many Japanese titles, as I want to keep them for the Japanese Literature Challenge starting in January at Dolce Bellezza.
It’a very short work, and I have until end of October to read and review it.
