December 1974 Folio notes: “Reading aloud was once a familiar pastime, back in the days before film and television took over our lives. It was an encompassing experience that bound people together. It is in this spirit that we offer up our Christmas present of Anna Karenina. Should you like to follow along, or catch up on passages you may have missed, we are using the Signet paperback edition, newly translated by David Magarshack.
