The short works of Dostoevsky exist in the very large shadow of his astonishing longer novels, but they too are among literature's most revered works and offer keys to understanding the themes in his longer works. Contained in this volume are the short stories "White Nights", "A Disgraceful Affair", and "The Dream of the Ridiculous Man", three of Dostoevsky's most troubling, moving, and poignant works.
Expect three very different stories with very different moods.
There is also a short story in this edition which is not advertised or credited on the Audible page—"St. Luis of Palmyra" from More of This World or Maybe Another by Barb Johnson—tucked in as a surprise at the end, and narrated by Kirby Heyborne. I skipped it, but seeing the reviews now on Amazon, I'll probably go back to it.
