In November 1910, Count Leo Tolstoy died at a remote Russian railway station, attended by the world's media. He was eighty-two-years-old, one of the greatest writers the word had ever seen and had lived a remarkable and long life during one of the most turbulent periods of Russian history. 

Rosamund Barlett's exceptional biography of this brilliant maddening and contrary man sheds new light on his fascinating journey from callow youth to writer and prophet. It draws on key Russian sources, including the many new materials which have been published about Tolstoy and his legacy since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
