Get a glimpse of young Tolstoy in this revelatory new translation of his poignant semi-autobiographical trilogy

Leo Tolstoy wrote his first published work, Childhood, when he was only twenty-three years old. A semi-autobiographical novel, it recounts two days in the childhood of ten-year-old Nikolai Irtenev, recreating vivid impressions of people, places, and events with the exuberant perspective of a child and the ironic retrospective understanding of an adult. Boyhood and Youth soon followed, and together they launched Tolstoy on the literary career that would bring him immortality.
