    The Doll

    A 19th-century novel that takes in the sweep of three generations caught up in dreams of Polish revolution as well as the hopes, agonies, and yearnings of a panorama of characters. Prus’s book shows the influence of his literary idols, Dickens and Twain. “Rich in episodic figures and observations of daily life in Warsaw, the novel demonstrates 19th-century realism at its best.” —Czesław Miłosz
