Tolstoy

Synopsis

In this landmark biography of Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy, Wilson narrates the complex drama of the writer's life and sweeps away the long-held belief that Tolstoy's works mirrored his life. Wilson instead traces the roots of Tolstoy's art to his relationship with God, with women, and with Russia. Illustrations.
