Description - Mod Lib The Kreutzer Sonata by Leo Tolstoy

Recounting a husband's addictions, sinister guilt, humiliation, and subsequent obsession with his wife, Tolstoy shows us in this brilliant, taut narrative just how destructive a partnership can be.THE KREUTZER SONATA is an example of Tolstoy's thoughts on spiritual crisis, Christianity, and sexuality, and an exquisite introduction to the great Russian writer.
