Book Description:
From Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, the best selling, award winning translators of War and Peace and Anna Karenina, comes a new, beautifully crafted, and eminently readable translation of Tolstoy s most important short fiction.

Here are eleven incandescent stories from the mature author, some autobiographical, others moral parables, and all imaginative, transcendent, and evocatively drawn. They include The Prisoner of the Caucasus, inspired by Tolstoy s experiences as a soldier in the Chechen War, and one of only two of his works that Tolstoy himself considered good art ; Hadji Murat, the novella Harold Bloom called the best story in the world, featuring the real life war hero Hadji Murat, a Chechen rebel who ravaged his Russian occupiers only to defect to the Russian side after a falling out with his own commander; The Devil, a tale of sexual obsession based on Tolstoy s relationship with a married peasant woman on his estate in the years before his marriage; and the celebrated The Death of Ivan Ilyich, an intense and moving examination of death and the possibilities of redemption.

Pevear and Volokhonsky s translation captures the richness, immediacy, and multiplicity of Tolstoy s language, and reveals the author as a passionate moral guide, an unflinching seeker of truth, and, ultimately, a creator of enduring and universal art.
