For over 150 years the work of F.M. Dostoevsky has stirred the imagination of readers all over the world. A master storyteller, he combined a psychologist’s perception with a philosopher’s depth and a political dissident’s suspicion of authority. Controversial during his lifetime and to this day, he revolutionized world literature with works like Notes from Underground, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, The Devils, and The Brothers Karamazov.
