The title of this book should be Kostya Levin. He’s such a perfectly drawn character that I can’t think of any other character in literature who equals him; except maybe for Pierre in War and Peace.

After all his discomfort with society, with politicians, with the clergy, and with art; discovering that the meaning of life was in none of those things but is just in the fact of being alive is so beautiful.
