A Dose of Murder

by Lori Avocato

Open wide and say "ahhrrgggghhhhhhhhhhhhuuuhh." After years of chasing around sniffly muchkins with a tongue depressor, nurse Pauline Sokol has had it. She's sick of being an "angel of mercy"--she'd like to raise some hell for once! But finding a new career won't be easy for someone who's had no experience beyond thermometers and bedpans. Luckily, the smarmy head of an agency that investigates medical fraud thinks she'd be perfect for the job, since, for him, a potential employee's most important qualification is a killer pair of legs. So now Pauline's a p.i., but since she knows as much about detective work as a potted geranium might, the hunky and mysterious Jagger steps in to teach her the ropes. Her first assignment-going undercover at a local clinic to investigate fake insurance claims-promises to be a hoot...until the healers around her start inexplicably dropping dead. And before she can say, "streptococci," Pauline's stuck in a true health care crisis with her own continued wellness in very us jeopardy.

Dosed: The Medication Generation Grows Up

by Kaitlin Bell Barnett

Over the last two decades, we have seen a dramatic spike in the number of young people taking psychiatric medication--but, despite a heated debate on the issue, we haven't heard directly from the "medicated kids" themselves. In Dosed, Kaitlin Bell Barnett, who was diagnosed with depression as a teenager, weaves together stories from members of this medication generation, exploring their experiences at home, in school, and with the psychiatric profession. For many, taking meds has proved more complicated than merely popping a pill, as they try to parse their changing emotions, symptoms, side effects, and diagnoses without conclusive scientific research on how the drugs affect developing brains and bodies. While negotiating schoolwork, relationships, and the workplace, they also struggle to find the right drug, deal with breakdowns, decide whether they still need treatment at all--and, ultimately, make sense of their long-term relationship to psychotropic drugs. The results of what one psychopharmacologist describes as a "giant, uncontrolled experiment" are just starting to trickle in. Barnett shows that a lack of ready answers and guidance has often proven extremely difficult for these young people as they transition from childhood to adolescence and now to adulthood. With its in-depth accounts of individual experiences combined with sociological and scientific context, Dosed provides a much-needed road map for patients, friends, parents, and those in the helping professions trying to navigate the complicated terrain of growing up on meds.

Dostoevsky

by Joseph Frank

Joseph Frank's award-winning, five-volume Dostoevsky is widely recognized as the best biography of the writer in any language--and one of the greatest literary biographies of the past half-century. Now Frank's monumental, 2500-page work has been skillfully abridged and condensed in this single, highly readable volume with a new preface by the author. Carefully preserving the original work's acclaimed narrative style and combination of biography, intellectual history, and literary criticism, Dostoevsky: A Writer in His Time illuminates the writer's works--from his first novel Poor Folk to Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov--by setting them in their personal, historical, and above all ideological context. More than a biography in the usual sense, this is a cultural history of nineteenth-century Russia, providing both a rich picture of the world in which Dostoevsky lived and a major reinterpretation of his life and work.

Dostoevsky Portrayed by his Wife: The Diary and Reminiscences of Mme. Dostoevsky

by Anna Gregorevna Dostoevsky S. S. Koteliansky

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (11 November 1821 - 9 February 1881) was a Russian novelist, short story writer, essayist, journalist and philosopher. Dostoevsky’s literary works explored human psychology in the troubled political, social, and spiritual atmosphere of 19th-century Russia, and engaged with a variety of philosophical and religious themes. He became one of the most widely read and highly regarded Russian writers. His writings were widely read both within and beyond his native Russia and influenced an equally great number of later writers, including Russians like Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Anton Chekhov, as well as philosophers such as Friedrich Nietzsche and Jean-Paul Sartre.This book, first published in its present form in 1926, contains portions of the Diary of Dostoevsky’s second wife, Anna Dostoevsky, the rough notes of her Reminiscences, and copies of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s letters to her from 1866 to 1881. All of these, in her own handwriting, were found in August 1922 and delivered by the representative of the Commissar of Education in Georgia (in the Caucasus) to the directors of the Moscow Archives, and serve to provide a clear portrait of Dostoevsky’s wife during the last fourteen years of his life.“Mme. Dostoevsky, with her practical mind, abounding energy, indomitable will and capacity for seeing things through when once a decision was made, is here revealed as the true complement of Dostoevsky, who was rather incompetent in practical affairs.”—Prefatory NoteThe book is also beautifully illustrated with 4 full-page plates.

The Double

by Fyodor Dostoevsky

The Double, written in Dostoevsky's youth, was a sharp turn away from the realism of his first novel, Poor Folk. The first real expression of his genius, The Double is a surprisingly modern hallucinatory nightmare in which a minor official named Goliadkin becomes aware of a mysterious doppelgänger-a man who has his name and his face and who gradually and relentlessly begins to displace him with his friends and colleagues. In the dilemma of this increasingly paranoid hero, Dostoevsky makes vividly concrete the inner disintegration of consciousness that would become a major theme of his work. The Gambler was written twenty years later, under the pressure of crushing debt. It is a stunning psychological portrait of a young man's exhilarating and destructive addiction, a compulsion that Dostoevsky-who once gambled away his young wife's wedding ring-knew intimately from his own experience. In the disastrous love affairs and gambling adventures of his character, Alexei Ivanovich, Dostoevsky explores the irresistible temptation to look into the abyss of ultimate risk that he believed was an essential part of the Russian national character. The two strikingly original short novels brought together here-in new translations by award-winning translators-were both literary gambles of a sort for Dostoevsky. (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)
