A very nice bright copy. Clean and tight. Used; Very Good Cover design by Andrzej Krauze. Gloumov, (the protagonist) has not only become an eduring character on the Russian stage, but the abstract noun derived from his name, Gloumovshchina (or Gloumovism ), has entered the language. As long as ambitious young men with brains and talent can most readily achieve success by selling themselves and betraying their better natures, gloumovism will thrive.
