Although best known for his monumental novels, Tolstoy also wrote tightly compressed works of equal power. This new collection gathers perhaps his greatest novella, 'The Death of Ivan Ilyich', together with shorter masterpieces 'Three Deaths', 'Pace-setter' and the fable-like story 'Alyosha the Pot'.

Whether writing from the perspective of an aged horse or plotting the travails of an optimistic young worker, Tolstoy was able to penetrate to the rich core of human experience like no writer before or since.

These sensitive new renderings by award-winning translator Boris Dralyuk show with gleaming clarity Tolstoy's unmatched understanding of the human condition.
