In this biography of Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy, A.N. Wilson narrates the drama of the writer's life: his childhood of aristocratic privilege but emotional deprivation, his discovery of his literary genius after aimless years of gambling and womanizing, and his increasingly disastrous marriage. Wilson traces the roots of Tolstoy's art to his relationship with God, with women, and with Russia, and breaks new ground in re-creating the world that shaped the great novelist's life and art-the turmoil of ideas and politics in nineteenth-century Russia and the incredible literary renaissance that made Tolstoy's work possible.
