As inventive as Agatha Christie, as hilarious as P.G. Wodehouse - discover the delightful detective stories of Edmund Crispin. Crime fiction at its quirkiest and best. Richard Cadogan, poet and would-be bon vivant, arrives for what he thinks will be a relaxing holiday in the city of dreaming spires. Late one night, however, he discovers the dead body of an elderly woman lying in a toyshop and is coshed on the head. When he comes to, he finds that the toyshop has disappeared and been replaced with a grocery store. The police are understandably skeptical of this tale but Richard's former schoolmate, Gervase Fen (Oxford professor and amateur detective), knows that truth is stranger than fiction (in fiction, at least). Soon the intrepid duo are careening around town in hot pursuit of clues but just when they think they understand what has happened, the disappearing-toyshop mystery takes a sharp turn…Erudite, eccentric and entirely delightful – Before Morse, Oxford's murders were solved by Gervase Fen, the most unpredictable detective in classic crime fiction.

The first book-length study on the subject in any language, Tolstoy and the Religious Culture of His Time treats Tolstoy's experience not as a conversion moment but as the evolution of his religious outlook over half a lifetime. Inessa Medzhibovskaya bases her discussion on Tolstoy's religious ongoing dialogue with the tradition of conversion in Europe and Russia, from Saint Paul to Dostoevsky, while thoroughly reexaming several of his major works from this perspective: War and Peace, Anna Karenina, The Death of Ivan Il'ich, A Confession, and On Life.
