The Gambler and Other Stories Paperback



"The Gambler and Other Stories" is Fyodor Dostoyevsky's collection of one novella and six short stories reflecting his own life - indeed, "The Gambler", a story of a young tutor in the employment of a formerly wealthy Russian General, was written under a strict deadline so he could pay off his roulette debts.

This volume includes "Bobok", the tale of a frustrated writer visiting a cemetery and enjoying the gossip of the dead; "The Dream of a Ridiculous Man", the story of one man's plan to commit suicide and the troubling dream that follows, as well as "A Christmas Party and a Wedding", "A Nasty Story" and "The Meek One".
