A Penguin Classics Hardcover


Regarded as one of world literature's foremost novelists, Fyodor Dostoyevsky's short stories are also some of the best ever written. “White Nights” tells of love and loss on the streets of St. Petersburg, “A Nasty Business” presents the hilarious tale of a general dropping in on the wedding of a subordinate, while “The Meek One” is an existentialist tale of marriage and tragedy.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821–1881), one of nineteenth-century Russia’s greatest novelists, spent four years in a convict prison in Siberia, after which he was obliged to enlist in the army. In later years his penchant for gambling sent him deeply into debt. Most of his important works were written after 1864, including Notes from Underground, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, and The Brothers Karamazov, all available from Penguin Classics.
