Anna Karenina (Paperback)
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
