Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoyevsky

28 01 2009

Fyodor  Dostoyevsky died today in 1881. Sadly I  have to admit that although he is considered one of the best novelists ever I’ve not read most of his books.


To make up for it here’s a link to some of his books, I believe they are in the public domain by now. As a curiosity Dostoyevsky was painfully shy and also suffered from recurrent depressions. He also spent four years in a Siberian jail and with the book The House of the Dead started the Russian tradition of prison camp literature.

Man only likes to count his troubles, but he does not count his joys.
