Book Description:

Joseph Frank's award winning, five volume Dostoevsky is widely recognized as the best biography of the writer in any language and one of the greatest literary biographies of the past half century. Now Frank's monumental, 2500 page work has been skillfully abridged and condensed in this single, highly readable volume with a new preface by the author. Carefully preserving the original work's acclaimed narrative style and combination of biography, intellectual history, and literary criticism, Dostoevsky: A Writer in His Time illuminates the writer's works from his first novel Poor Folk to Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov by setting them in their personal, historical, and above all ideological context. More than a biography in the usual sense, this is a cultural history of nineteenth century Russia, providing both a rich picture of the world in which Dostoevsky lived and a major reinterpretation of his life and work.
