Anna Karenina – Leo Tolstoy

What happens?

Anna is a woman. Anna is married. Anna has an affair with Count Vronsky. This goes on for quite some time. Anna gets fed up. Anna gets jealous. Anna dies.


Reason for bleaklisting?

Anna is a bit stroppy!


What should have happened?

Anna is in a loveless marriage and seeks excitement elsewhere. On a rare trip into town she meets two sisters – Mina and Nina – who take her for drinks at some posh pub where people fall through bars and Paul Newman and Jackie Gleason hustle the unsuspecting at games of pool. After many drinks, the three women are a bit worse for wear but it is Nina who is paralytic. Mina explains that she has a bad back and asks Anna if she would mind helping Nina back to their home. This goes on for many months until Mina and Nina run away to become Hollywood stars. Left alone, Anna decides to be a novelist and write about her drinking exploits which earns her lots of money and she then leaves her husband, who doesn’t take kindly to having a walrus installed in the back garden.


Special instruction

Sell in all drinking establishments and rename, Anna, Carry Nina.

Mr B compares the stories

Tolstoy’s celebrated novel is regarded as one of the greatest ever written along with War & Peace. It is a tragic and doomed romance between Anna and Count Vronsky, an affair that impacts heavily on Anna when it becomes known but doesn’t hold her lover back. Anna becomes more miserable as the narrative progresses and hers is a sad fate. At no point does she go drinking with Mina and Nina though. Charlie’s scandalous attempt to degrade Tolstoy’s masterpiece, though admirable, is also pathetic.
