His Life and Work
Translated by Michael A. Minihan
Konstantin Mochulsky's critical biography is, in the words of George Gibian, "the best single work in any language about Dostoevsky's work as a whole." Through its close and insightful analysis of individual writings, relating them to his personal life and fortunes, it provides a sustained account of Dostoevsky's evolution as a novelist. Already established as a modern classic in the original Russian and in the French translation, this superb book is now available in English.
