Brigg's 2006 translation of Tolstoy's old doorstop was paraded by critics, many of whom hailed it as the best rendition to date. This fine addition to Penguin's marvelous "Classics Deluxe" line includes the full text, chapter summaries, textual notes, character lists by family, maps, and more. It's a Russian lit (and Tolstoy head's) dream, especially at this price (the 2006 hardcover was $40).[Page 108]. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
