The Three Volume Novel

I just watched the British version of The Importance of Being Earnest, made in 1952. It was quite delightful and wonderfully cast.

Anyone who's seen either version or loves the play, knows that Miss Prism is quite proud of her three volume novel and is highly insulted when Cecily says how boring and trivial such things are. My sister promptly turned to me and said "Your Russian thing is a three volume novel".

She's right...
