Dostoevsky in 90 Minutes

The Great Writers in 90 Minutes Series
By Paul Strathern
Narrated by Simon Vance / 2 hours 7 minutes

Building on his enormously successful series of Philosophers in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern now applies his witty and incisive prose to brief biographical studies of the world’s great writers. He brings their lives and ideas to life in entertaining and accessible fashion.

After narrowly avoiding a firing squad when he was just twenty-eight years old, Dostoevsky never took things lightly. His great novels burst upon the European literary scene like a succession of thunderbolts. His understanding of the darker and more extreme recesses of the human mind cast a forceful light into these areas of experience. The raw psychology and passionate involvement of his books galvanized writers and thinkers as disparate as Nietzsche and Kafka.

In Dostoevsky in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Dostoevsky’s life and ideas and explains their influence on literature and on man’s struggle to understand his place in the world. The book also includes selections from Dostoevsky’s writings and recommended reading for those who wish to delve deeper.
