This collection, unique to the Modern Library, gathers seven of Dostoevsky's key works and shows him to be equally adept at the short story as with the novel. Exploring many of the same themes as in his longer works, these small masterpieces move from the tender and romantic White Nights, an archetypal nineteenth-century morality tale of pathos and loss, to the famous Notes from the Underground, a story of guilt, ineffectiveness, and uncompromising cynicism, and the first major work of existential literature. Among Dostoevsky's prototypical characters is Yemelyan in The Honest Thief, whose tragedy turns on an inability to resist crime. Presented in chronological order, in David Magarshack's celebrated translation, this is the definitive edition of Dostoevsky's best stories.
Stories to make you laugh and cry, they interweave themes of being Jewish, a lesbian, a feminist. The now-classic award-winning piece, "A Letter to Harvey Milk," begins the collection and draws you right in. Hilarious "Of Balloons and Bubbles" tells of a butch woman taking friend's 2½ year old out for an afternoon while trying to decide whether to have her own child or not. In "The Babka Sisters," an old Jewish woman giving an oral history, tells of her coming out. "Homo Alone," is a familiar piece about going to the parents' for Thanksgiving. There are stories about AIDS, coming out, aging, finding woman-love on a kibbutz, how alternative insemination alters a relationship, eroticism at all ages. This is truly a collection spanning the award-winning author's works. Highly recommended!
