The Kreutzer Sonata


The Kreutzer Sonata has become one of the most widely read and influential books ever written.  

It reveals the astounding range, subtlety, artistry, and depth of a true original, Leo Tolstoy, author of War And Peace, Anna Karenina, The Kingdom of God is Within You, and countless other literary masterpieces.

Published in hundreds of editions and translated into virtually every modern language, it has not been out of print since 1889.

● Contains extended historical context and a critical essay: My Father: A Cultural and Historical Perspective, by Count Ilyá Tolstoy.

The Kreutzer Sonata has emerged over time as one of the greatest literary dissections of man’s jealous rage ever created. Upon publication, it was immediately censored by the Russian authorities.

The appearance of this sumptuously produced twenty-first century edition of The Kreutzer Sonata will delight the countless admirers of Leo Tolstoy.
