Hailed as one of the world's supreme masterpieces on the subject of death and dying, The Death of Ivan Ilyich is the story of a worldly careerist, a high court judge who has never given the inevitability of his death so much as a passing thought. But one day death announces itself to him, and to his shocked surprise he is brought face to face with his own mortality. How, Tolstoy asks, does an unreflective man confront his one and only moment of truth?

This short novel was the artistic culmination of a profound spiritual crisis in Tolstoy's life, a nine-year period following the publication of Anna Karenina during which he wrote not a word of fiction. A thoroughly absorbing and, at times, terrifying glimpse into the abyss of death, it is also a strong testament to the possibility of finding spiritual salvation.

"The English-speaking world is indebted to these two translators." --Orlando Figes, The New York Review of Books "Excellent. . . . The duo has managed to convey the rather simple elegance of Tolstoy's prose." --The New Criterion "Pevear and Volokhonsky's new version is . . . flexible individuated, immediate." --The Nation

"Well translated. As a lover of Tolstoy's work, one couldn't ask for more, and I can't recommend it highly enough." --Andr� Alexis, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
