Fresh translations of Tolstoy’s four richest shorter works by the award-winning Boris Dralyuk

Tolstoy’s stories contain many of the most acutely observed moments in his monumental body of work. This new selection of his shorter works, sensitively translated by the award-winning Boris Dralyuk, showcases the peerless economy with which Tolstoy could render the passions and conflicts of a life.

These are works that take us from a self-interested judge’s agonising deathbed to the bristling social world of horses in a stable yard, from the joyful vanity of youth to the painful doubts of sickness and old age. With unwavering precision, Tolstoy’s eye brings clarity and richness to the simplest materials.

New translations of Tolstoy’s best shorter work by the award-winning Boris Dralyuk, acclaimed translator of Babel’s Odessa Stories and Red Cavalry

Follows on from the success of Pushkin’s two other Essential Stories collections, The Beauties and The Unhappiness of Being a Single Man

An updated look at one of the most admired writers in history, shifting the focus on to his more accessible, shorter work

Contains four stories: The Death of Ivan Ilyich; Pace-setter: The Story of a Horse; Three Deaths; and Alyosha the Pot

Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910) was born to an aristocratic family near Tula, Russia. After abandoning his studies he returned to live on his family’s estate, later enlisting in the army and serving in the Crimean War. Over the course of his life, he wrote plays, dozens of short stories and many works of philosophy. He is now one of the most widely admired writers of all time.
