My first Tolstoy.
I was prompted to try Tolstoy based on the Mini-series "Genius" where I learned that Einstein and his wife, Elsa, were devotees of this great Russian writer. I wasn't ready for 71 hour War And Peace so I found this magnificent short story, 33 minutes of pure Genius.
I have been looking for God all the time. Yesterday I gave 5 bucks to a homeless man. First time, I swear, and it wasn't until I saw rhe homeless man that compelled me to reach for my wallet as a result of this great story.
I don't think I'm ready for W&P, yet!
