Just a thought on Leo Tolstoy’s Short Stories

I read 10 short stories by Leo Tolstoy last month prior to tackling The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky; I wanted to ease into my latest run-in with Russian literature, often filled to the brink of spillage with heavy philosophy and psychological analysis of deeply troubled characters—this was proven by my encounter with Anna Karenina, also Tolstoy, a couple of years ago (I bought a copy of Android Karen

The Best Stories and Tales of Leo Tolstoy:

One of the best ‘moral science’ books I have read. An anthology with 23 stories, divided into 7 parts.
