From the Inside Flap:

This new edition combines Tolstoy's most famous short tale, "The Death of Ivan Ilyich, with a less well known but equally brilliant gem, "Master and Man, both newly translated by Ann Pasternak Slater. Both stories confront death and the process of dying: In "Ivan Ilyich, a bureaucrat looks back over his life, which suddenly seems meaningless and wasteful, while in Master and Man, a landowner and servant must each confront the value of the other as they brave a devastating snowstorm. The quintessential Tolstoyan themes of mortality, spiritual redemption, and life's meaning are nowhere more movingly and deftly explored than in these two tales.
This unique edition also includes a critical Introduction and extensive notes by Ann Pasternak Slater, a Fellow at St. Anne's College, Oxford.
