Review:

The English-speaking world is indebted to these two translators. Orlando Figes, The New York Review of Books

Excellent. . . . The duo has managed to convey the rather simple elegance of Tolstoy s prose. The New Criterion

Pevear and Volokhonsky s new version is . . . flexible individuated, immediate. The Nation

Well translated. As a lover of Tolstoy s work, one couldn t ask for more, and I can t recommend it highly enough. Andre Alexis, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)"

About the Author:

Leo Tolstoy was born in 1828 in the Tula province. He studied at the University of Kazan, then led a life of pleasure until 1851 when he joined an artillery regiment in the Caucasus. He established his reputation as a writer with The Sebastopol Sketches (1855-6). After a period in St Petersburg and abroad, he married, had thirteen children, managed his vast estates in the Volga Steppes and wrote War and Peace (1869) and Anna Karenina (1877). A Confession (1879-82) marked a spiritual crisis in his life, and in 1901 he was excommuincated by the Russian Holy Synod. He died in 1910, in the course of a dramatic flight from home, at the railway station of Astapovo.
