Overview

A new selection of seven of Dostoyevsky’s best stories.

“The Gambler,” about a young tutor in the employ of a Russian general, was written under a strict deadline so Dostoyevsky could pay off his roulette debts. Also included here are “Bobok,” the tale of a frustrated writer visiting a cemetery and enjoying the gossip of the dead; “The Dream of a Ridiculous Man,” the story of one man’s plan to commit suicide and the troubling dream that follows; as well as “White Nights,” “A Christmas Party and a Wedding,” “A Nasty Story,” and “The Meek One.”
