Gambler by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Book DescriptionIts story of passion and despair is based on Dostoevsky's own experience as a compulsive gambler-but Dostoevsky was able to break away, whereas Alexei vows to quit as soon as he breaks even-an event, it is clear, that will never happen. Like so many other characters in Dostoeveky's novels, Alexei is trying to break through the wall of the established order and the human condition itself. But instead he is drawn into the roulette wheel's vortex.

Consumed by the idea of his own special destiny, immured in poverty and deprivation, Rashkolnikov is drawn to commit a terrible crime. In the aftermath, Rashkolnikov is dogged by madness, guilt and a calculating detective. The only hope for redemption, if Rashkolnikov can but recognise it, lies in the virtuous and faithful Sonya.

Double, Paperback (August 2016)» View all books by Fyodor Dostoevsky
The Double, Dostoevsky's second published work of fiction, which foreshadows in its themes many of his mature novels, is the surreal and hallucinatory tale of an unfortunate anti-hero, at once chilling in its depiction of the dark sides of human nature and exuberantly comical.
