A young adult biography of Russian writer Leo Tolstoy

From Booklist:

The opening scene of this serviceable, accessible biography depicts Tolstoy as a middle-aged aristocrat wishing to renounce his wealth. Dressed as a peasant, he left his disapproving family and set off on a religious pilgrimage, while behind him followed two minions carrying money and clean linens. After this ironic vignette, Heims begins a chronological account of Tolstoy's life: his privileged childhood, his troubled youth spent ricocheting from compulsive gambling and sexual exploits to self-hatred and penitence, and his maturity as a man drawn to extremes in ideology, self-image, and relationships. Focusing primarily on the man rather than his work, Heims mentions Tolstoy's writing mainly as it intersects with his life, noting the later emergence of overtly religious themes in his work, for instance, or mentioning characters and incidents inspired by personal experiences. The many illustrations, most reproduced in color, include period photos and paintings. The book concludes with a time line, source notes, and lists of books and Internet sites. Phelan, Carolyn
