Mahfuz, Najib, 1911-2006 — Though his stories are set in Egypt rather than in Russia, critically acclaimed novelist Najib Mahfuz, like Leo Tolstoy, wrote sweeping, vividly detailed, and elegant fiction that adeptly weaves political commentary and philosophical speculation into gripping, intimately drawn human dramas. -- Derek Keyser
Dostoyevsky, Fyodor, 1821-1881 — Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Leo Tolstoy, arguably the two greatest Russian writers ever, are not interchangeable: Tolstoy's prose is more accessible, and Dostoyevsky's ruminations are drearier. But they have a great deal in common: with gripping characters and profound insights, they explore universal human themes such as religion, family, and freedom. -- Jessica Zellers
Dunmore, Helen, 1952- — Though these authors write about different periods in Russian history, Leo Tolstoy is a major source of inspiration for Helen Dunmore's stories of war-torn Russia. Both authors use elegant, lushly descriptive prose and psychologically intimate characterization to explore ordinary human experiences in tumultuous periods of Russian history. -- Derek Keyser
