Collected Shorter Fiction, Vol. 1 by Leo Tolstoy
Book DescriptionWritten over a period of more than half a century, Leo Tolstoy s stories reflect every aspect of his art and personality. They cover his experiences as a soldier in the Caucasus, his married life, his passionate interest in the peasantry, his cult of truth and simplicity, and his growing preoccupation with religion. The stories in Volume 1 of the "Collected Shorter Fiction" date from the period in which the young Tolstoy wrote "Anna Karenina" and "War and Peace." Ranging from brief, masterfully sketches of military life such as The Wood-Felling to novellas like "Family Happiness," an uneasy imagining of the idyllic possibilities of marriage by the not-yet-married writer, all feature Tolstoy s characteristically lavish deployment of detail, shrewd observation, and imaginative power. Translated by Louise and Aylmer Maude(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)"

Books By Author Leo Tolstoy
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.
Childhood, Boyhood, Youth, Paperback (November 2016)
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.
