Reminiscences of Tolstoy by His Son Count Ilya Tolstoy Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

According to Wikipedia: "Leo Tolstoy, or Count Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy (September 9, 1828 – November 20, 1910), was a Russian writer widely regarded as among the greatest of European novelists. His masterpieces, War and Peace and Anna Karenina, represent the peak of realist fiction in their scope, breadth and vivid depiction of 19th-century Russian life and mind. Tolstoy's further talents as essayist, dramatist, and educational reformer made him the most influential member of the aristocratic Tolstoy family. His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him in later life to become a fervent Christian anarchist and pacifist. His ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You, were to have a profound impact on such pivotal twentieth-century figures as Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr."
