The enduring genius of Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoevsky shines through in this special eBook collection that includes four classic Russian novels—each one recognized as a masterpiece of world literature. ANNA KARENINA “One of the greatest love stories in world literature.”—Vladimir Nabokov Anna Karenina is Tolstoy’s classic tale of love and adultery set against the backdrop of high society in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. The rich and complex story charts the disastrous course of a love affair between Anna, a beautiful married woman, and Count Vronsky, a wealthy army officer. CRIME AND PUNISHMENT “Crime and Punishment has upon most readers an impact as immediate and obvious and full as the news of murder next door.”—R. P. Blackmur The story of the murder committed by Raskolnikov and his guilt and atonement, Dostoevsky’s brilliant novel is without doubt the most gripping and illuminating account ever written of a crime of repugnance and despair and the consequences that inevitably arise from it. THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV “The Brothers Karamazov stands as the culmination of Dostoevsky’s art.”—The Washington Post Book World Dostoevsky’s crowning achievement is a tale of patricide and family rivalry that embodies the moral and spiritual dissolution of an entire society. To Dostoevsky, it captured the quintessence of Russian character in all its exaltation, compassion, and profligacy. WAR AND PEACE “There remains the greatest of all novelists—for what else can we call the author of War and Peace?”—Virginia Woolf Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic Wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy’s genius is seen clearly in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle—all of them fully realized and equally memorable.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and Peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic Wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy’s genius is seen clearly in the multitude of characters in this massive chronicle—all of them fully realized and equally memorable. Out of this complex narrative emerges a profound examination of the individual’s place in the historical process, one that makes it clear why Thomas Mann praised Tolstoy for his Homeric powers and placed War and Peace in the same category as the Iliad: “To read him . . . is to find one’ s way home . . . to everything within us that is fundamental and sane.”

1910. Anna Karenina and War and Peace have made Leo Tolstoy the world's most famous author. But fame comes at a price. In the tumultuous final year of his life, Tolstoy is desperate to find respite, so leaves his large family and the hounding press behind and heads into the wilderness. Too ill to venture beyond the tiny station of Astapovo, he believes his last days will pass in isolation. But as we learn through the journals of those closest to him, the battle for Tolstoy's soul will not be a peaceful one. Jay Parini introduces, translates and edits this collection of Tolstoy's autobiographical writing, diaries, and letters related to the last year of Tolstoy's life published to coincide with the 2009 film of Parini's novel The Last Station: A Novel of Tolstoy's Final Year.
