Long hailed as one of the world's greatest writers, Leo Tolstoy is best known for his novels War and Peace and Anna Karenina. Yet the popularity of his shorter works - including the two dozen collected here - attests to his prowess as master of the short story. From "Walk in the Light", a parable that reflects Tolstoy's fascination with early Christians, to beloved tales such as "Ivan the Fool", "A Prisoner in the Caucasus" and "What Men Live By, the stories in this volume have stood the test of time.
