Shortlisted for the Slightly Foxed Best First Biography Prize 2021.

Parsing Dostoevsky’s own words, Alex Christofi reconstructs the memoir he might have written, from Siberian prison camp to Europe’s gambling halls and the salons of St Petersburg. Central are the three women he loved and lived with, through epilepsy, poverty and addiction to gambling. He gives us a new and intimate portrait of a writer able to penetrate the depths of the human soul.

‘A daring and mesmerizing twist on the art of biography’ Douglas Smith, author of Rasputin: The Biography
