The Double by Fyodor Dostoyevsky Most significant of the Russian novelist's early stories (1846) offers a straight-faced treatment of a hallucinatory theme. Golyadkin senior is a powerless target of persecution by Golyadkin junior, his double in almost every respect. Familiar Dostoyevskan themes of helplessness, victimization, scandal — beautifully handled in this small masterpiece. #doverthrift #classiclit #doverthrift #classiclit

The Double by Fyodor Dostoyevsky - a humble office clerk meets his doppelganger—or is he merely mad?

Movies I want to watch - “I have all these things that I want to say to her. Like how I can tell she’s a lonely person, even if other people can’t. Cause I know what it feels like to be lost and lonely and invisible.” The Double (2013) dir. Richard Ayoade

The Gambler (Игрок) is a short novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky about a young tutor in the employment of a formerly wealthy Russian general. From 1863 till 1871, when his passion for gambling subsided, the author played at Baden-Baden, Homburg, and Saxon-les-Bains frequently, often beginning by winning a small amount of money and losing far more in the end. http://thermales.blogspot.fr/2014/05/roulettenbourg-dostoievski-et-les.html #Dostoyevsky #Roulettenbourg
