Brief Lives: Leo Tolstoy, Paperback / softback Book

Brief Lives: Leo Tolstoy Paperback / softback

Part of the Brief Lives series


Born in central Russia in 1828, Tolstoy saw action as a soldier before becoming a writer.

His two novels, "War and Peace" and "Anna Karenina", are among the best loved in world literature.

Anthony Briggs compares these works, and describes many others.

He also considers why such a strong character as Tolstoy welcomed into his life two appalling individuals whose malign influence changed him and his literary career forever.
