Staff Reviews

A well respected translator of Russian fiction, Schwartz was determined to give us Anna Karenina as Tolstoy wrote it: In the simple, unadorned language he preferred. I found this translation immensely powerful - bringing me to tears at times.  It is also illuminating -revealing nuances in the characters I'd never before grasped. The cogent introduction by Gary Saul Morson,  which summarizes the novel's central themes, provides a great starting point for book club discussion. 

— Samantha


Anna Karenina is generally considered Tolstoy's best book, and by some, the greatest novel ever written. Anna, miserable in her loveless marriage, does the barely thinkable and succumbs to her desires for another.
