Tolstoy: A Russian Life

Friday, December 02, 2011

Rosamund Bartlett talks about the life and legacy of Leo Tolstoy. At the time of his death, he was the most famous man in Russia, with a growing international following, and more revered than the tsar. Bartlett’s biography, Tolstoy: A Russian Life is a portrait of the brilliant, maddening, and contrary man who made a lasting impression on literature and culture.

This is still not the Tolstoy interview—it's the Joseph Heller interview.

Tech support! Help!

Listened to this hoping for the Tolstoy segment, but it never came. Can you post it? Thanks!

It is quite ridiculous to call the followers of Tolstoy (tolstovcy) Communists.
