“All happy families are alike but each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” This famous first line introduces us into a vast panorama of contemporary life in nineteenth century Russia on which the spellbinding story of Anna and her unhappy family unfolds with unprecedented emotional realism. In the character of Levin the author comes closest to expressing his own views and convictions. Written several years after War and Peace, this novel is considered the more perfect work, offering intimate insight into the human psyche and also perhaps the Russian soul. It’s a page-turner, too!
