Notes:
Leo Tolstoy embarked on 'Childhood, Boyhood, Youth' in his early 20s. Though he later regarded his first published sketches as an 'awkward mixture of fact and fiction', they provide a highly expressive self-portrait which makes clear the man and the writer Tolstoy was to become.
Translated from the Russian.

Tolstoy brings his alert ear and eye to present his ideas of family, contemporary society in Russia in his youth, and the process of gaining maturity. His own experience threads through the three sections but he is the narrator. It is not an autobiography but a very readable unfinished novel.
