520    Bartlett draws extensively on key Russian sources, 
       including much fascinating new material made available 
       since the collapse of the Soviet Union. She sheds light on
       Tolstoy's remarkable journey from callow youth to writer 
       to prophet; discusses his troubled relationship with his 
       wife, Sonya, a subject long neglected; and vividly evokes 
       the Russian landscapes Tolstoy so loved. Above all, she 
       gives us an eloquent portrait of the brilliant, maddening,
       and contrary man who has, once again, been discovered by a
       new generation of readers.
