Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Ivan Bunin's <i>The Liberation of Tolstoy</i>:
"Marullo and Khmelkov have not only supplied us with a graceful translation, they have provided annotations, more voluminous than Bunin's original text, that display a breathtaking depth of knowledge about Bunin, Tolstoy, and Russian literature and culture in general. This is an invaluable contribution." --<i>Publishers Weekly</i>

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Paul E. Richardson VINE VOICE on October 17, 2008
Format: Paperback
Bunin knew Chekhov quite well, and this unfinished biography is filled with fascinating, intimate details from the interludes when the two authors' lives intersected, when they talked about Russia and its future, about writing and writers (Gorky is a recurrent theme). And Bunin is particularly good at thrusting us back to the turn of the 20th century, when Tolstoy, Stanislavsky, Balmont, Gilyarovsky and others walked the Earth. As revealing about the biographer as it is about the subject (thanks to copious footnotes and an extremely informative introduction), this is a must read for anyone with any interest in Russian literature. (Reviewed in Russian Life)
