Teaser Tuesday (July 6) - Kitty from Anna Karenina

The doctor's predictions came true. Kitty returned home to Russia cured. She was not as carefree and gay as before, but she was at peace. Her Moscow griefs became memories.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The passage above is from the end of part 2 of Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy, translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky.

The photo above is from a wonderful site with collages of costumes/actresses from the various film versions of AK. I suspect I will be using other images from this site to illustrate future AK posts!


  1. I must say, I really appreciated the character of Kitty, especially as a counterpoint to Anna. And I LOVED the Pevear/Volokhonsky translation!

  2. I'm reading Anna right now - we are just staring part 7 of a read-a-long. Feel free to join us:


  3. I so love that photo. I loved that book so much when I read it; enjoy Jane.

  4. I've just missed Teaser Tuesday - but I will definitely do this next week! The site with the collages on is fantastic Jane! Thanks for recommending:)
