Adam Taylor, January 1, 2010 (view all comments by Adam Taylor)
Haunting- passages from Dostoevsky's book still play out in my mind even though its been more than a year since I put it down. The critical essays that accompany this edition are superb- particularly D.H. Lawrence's essay on the Grand Inquisitor.
