Greetings Dostoyevsky fans,
Ever wondered how much time one should spend reading the works of Dostoyevsky, the Master of Petersburg? The answer is of course, as long as it takes to read everything! But for those not sure, I wrote a post about a minor work of his, Netochka Nezvanova. To say that it was an important work for Dostoyevsky is a given: it was his first attempt at writing a full-blown novel. But to me this has a special place as it led me to realize not only the enormous greatness of Dostoyevsky as a writer in general (if a minor work of his resonates as well as a major one, that is a good sign right?) but as one of my favorite authors of all time.

A happy Advent to you all!
