About this book


Few writers of the last century speak as urgently to our condition as Dostoevsky. In this book Peter Conradi examines Dostoevsky's understanding of psychological 'doubleness' before turning to the four major novels. He shows how Dostoevsky's understanding of suffering, guilt, repentance, paranoia and religious terrors has proved relevant in today's unbelieving age.
