'All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.' Acclaimed by many as the world's greatest novel, Anna Kerenina provides a vast panorama of contemporary life in Russia and of humanity in general. Anna is a sophisticated woman who abandons her empty existence as a wife and turns to her lover Count Vronsky to fulfil her passionate nature -with tragic consequences.

Review:

The new and brilliantly witty translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky is a must (Lisa Appignanesi Independent, Books of the Year)

Pevear and Volokhonsky are at once scrupulous translators and vivid stylists of English, and their superb rendering allows us, as perhaps never before, to grasp the palpability of Tolstoy's "characters, acts, situations" (James Wood New Yorker)

From the Back Cover:

Part of the beautifully presented 'Wonders of the World' series. Translated and edited by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky.

'I am writing a novel,' Tolstoy informed his friend the critic Nikolai Strakhov on 11 May 1873, referring to the book that was to become Anna Karenina. 'I've been at it for more than a month now and the main lines are traced out. This novel is truly a novel, the first in my life ...' From the Introduction.
