Of all Russian writers Leo Tolstoy is probably the best known to the Western world, largely because of War and Peace, his epic in prose, and Anna Karenina, one of the most splendid novels in any language. But during his long lifetime Tolstoy also wrote enough shorter works to fill many volumes. Here reprinted in one volume are his eight finest short novels, together with "Alyosha the Pot", the little tale that Prince Mirsky described as "a masterpiece of rare perfection."

The Death of Ivan Ilych
The Cossacks
Family Happiness
The Devil
The Kreutzer Sonata
Master and Man
Father Sergius
Haji Murad
Alyosha the Pot
