    One of the most sought-after and admired writers of her generation, Elif Batuman investigates a possible murder at Tolstoy's ancestral estate. Readers venture with her to Stanford, Switzerland, & St. Petersburg; trace Pushkin's wanderings in the Caucasus; learn why Old Uzbek has one hundred different words for crying; and see an eighteenth-century ice palace reconstructed on the Neva. Love and the novel, the individual in history,the existential plight of the graduate student: all find their place in THE POSSESSED. Literally and metamophically following the footsteps of her favorite predecessors, Batuman offers a fresh rendezvous with Great Russian writers.
