Childhood, Boyhood and Youth by Leo Tolstoy
Book DescriptionTolstoy's lightly fictionalized account of his own early experience ranks with Turgenev's Sportsman's Notebook as a masterpiece of nineteenth-century Russian pastoral life. Peasants and soldiers, servants and aristocrats: the whole world of Tolstoy's later fiction appears before us here in glowing colours, painted with that vivid freshness and sharp observation which were to become the mature writer's hallmarks.

War and Peace, Paperback (January 2017)
From sophisticated Moscow soirees to breathless troika rides through the snow, from the bloody front line at Austerlitz to a wife's death in childbirth, the author conjures a broad panorama of rich, messy, beautiful and debased human life.
Anna Karenina, Paperback (January 2017)
Anna is a beautiful, intelligent woman whose passionate affair with the dashing Count Vronsky leads her to ruin. Her story is also about a search for meaning, and by twinning it with that of Levin, an awkward idealist whose happy marriage and domestic trials form the backdrop for a similar quest.

An early display of Tolstoy's storytelling genius, written in his classically simple yet colourful language, these chronicles provide the reader with invaluable insight into the personal and literary development of one of the greatest writers of all time.

Author Biography - Leo Tolstoy
Leo Tolstoy was born in central Russia on 9 September 1828. In 1852 he published his first work, the autobiographical Childhood. He served in the army during the Crimean War and his Sevastopol Sketches (1855-6) are based on his experiences. His two most popular masterpieces are War and Peace (1864-69) and Anna Karenina (1875-8). He died in 1910. Together, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky have translated works by Tolstoy, Chekhov, Gogol, Bulgakov and Pasternak. They were twice awarded the PEN/Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize (for their translations of Dostoevsky's Brothers Karamazov and Tolstoy's Anna Karenina) and their translation of Dostoevsky's Demons was one of three nominees for the same prize. They are married and live in France.
