Acclaimed by many as the world’s greatest novel, ANNA KARENINA (1874-76) is the story of a woman who abandons her empty existence as the wife of Petersburg government minister for a passionate relationship with a young officer, Count Vronsky. The novel also offers Tolstoy’s most complete self-portrait, in the character Levin and the moral and religious crisis he suffers.

Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokonsky have translated Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita for Penguin and have produced acclaimed translations of Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky and Gogol. Their translation of The Brothers Karamazov won the 1991 PEN Book of the Month Club Translation Prize and was judged to “set a new standard in the translation of canonical works”.
