Opening my order on receipt I was pleased to find two lovely hardback books, cloth bound, ribbon markers and on a good quality stock.
The content, well? This is a reasonably comprehensive selection of Tolstoy's short stories. Pretty much all his more important tales are included and as a fan of the short story I was not at all disapointed.
Tolstoy writes about life in Russia as it was during much social and political turmoil and change, his themes vary but his voice is one of warmth and reflection, indeed he raises ethical and spiritual questions and truly deserves the esteem in which he is held.
