Tolstoy's tumultuous tale of passion and self-discovery marks a turning point in the author's career. His compelling, emotional saga recounts the effects of nonconformist behavior -- a society woman's adulterous affair and a landowner's unconventional quest for a meaningful existence -- against a backdrop of late 19th-century Russia.
