Well, Tolstoy-ish. Actually, Ben H. Winters, who co-authored Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters with Jane Austen, has again collaborated with a dead author to produce another homage to a seminal work of literature. Android Karenina, which Winters co-authored with Leo Tolstoy, will take Anna and her obsessive love for Vronsky into “a strange new world of robots, cyborgs, and interplanetary travel.” I am curious to learn if Winters did anything with the train that features so prominently in Tolstoy’s original Anna Karenina. You’ve all read Freud. I’m sure I don’t have to explain that particular analogy.
