Anna Karenina, begun in 1875 and finished two years later, shares with War and Peace the distinction of being the most widely read among Russian novels. The story of beautiful Anna, her dull marriage, her adulterous and destructive passion, set against the vividness of contemporary Russian life, makes this epic novel an unforgettable one.

A scientist obsessed with evolution but unable to have children, a malaria researcher trying to choose between freedom and love, and a washed-up TV svengali whose life goes into free fall—The Heart Broke In follows these characters through a riveting exploration of what conscience means in the 21st century, and how we attempt to make our lives count for something. It is a glorious drama, as well as an old-fashioned tale of modern times. When Bec Shepherd rejects marriage to a powerful newspaper editor in favour of starting a family with fellow scientist Alex, her sense of right and wrong is put to the test. Bec’s brother Ritchie has built a hugely successful career in entertainment, but allegations about his private life are threatening to destroy his marriage, his career and his mind. Does Bec and Alex’s relationship stand a chance? Will Ritchie’s indiscretion catch up with him?

Acclaimed by many as the world's greatest novel, Anna Karenina provides a vast panorama of contemporary life in Russia and of humanity in general. In it Tolstoy uses his intense imaginative insight to create some of the most memorable characters in all of literature. Anna is a sophisticated woman who abandons her empty existence as the wife of Karenin and turns to Count Vronsky to fulfil her passionate nature - with tragic consequences. Levin is a reflection of Tolstoy himself, often expressing the author's own views and convictions.Throughout, Tolstoy points no moral, merely inviting us not to judge but to watch. As Rosemary Edmonds comments, 'He leaves the shifting patterns of the kaleidoscope to bring home the meaning of the brooding words following the title, 'Vengeance is mine, and I will repay.

Mandelker's revisionist analysis begins with the contention that Anna Karenina rejects the textual conventions of realism and the stereo-typical representation of women, especially in Victorian English fiction. In Anna Karenina, Tolstoy uses the theme of art and visual representation to articulate an aesthetics freed from gender bias and class discrimination.

Anna Karenina is one of the most nuanced characters in world literature and we return to her, and the novel she propels, again and again. Remarkably, there has not yet been an examination of Leo Tolstoy specifically through the lens of this novel. Critic and professor Bob Blaisdell unravels Tolstoy’s family, literary, and day-to-day life during the period that he conceived, drafted, abandoned, and revised Anna Karenina. In the process, we see where Tolstoy’s life and his art intersect in obvious and unobvious ways. Readers often assume that Tolstoy, a nobleman-turned-mystic would write himself into the principled Levin. But in truth, it is within Anna that the consciousness and energy flows with the same depth and complexities as Tolstoy. Her fateful suicide is the road that Tolstoy nearly traveled himself. At once a nuanced biography and portrait of the last decades of the Russian empire and artful literary examination, Creating Anna Karenina will enthrall the thousands of readers whose lives have become deeper and clearer after experiencing this hallmark of world literature.
