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.
