    Thanks for the link to the Tolstoy article. I read “Kreutzer Sonata” last month and felt that if I was married to the person who wrote that, I would be sleeping, *armed* somewhere else. Loved the quote: “they were nonetheless driven to live as though Dostoevsky was making them up.” That, truly, would be a nightmare!

    You are more than welcome. Thank you for stopping by and commenting. And, yes, “Kreutzer Sonata” is pretty intense. I’d be a little concerned about sleeping with the author too.

    Nor would I want Dostoevsky to write my life. By the way, I had not come across your blog before. I like what you are doing there. Great bit on Dos Passos.

    Thanks. I think I found your site by searching about the Trilogy. Love your blog as well!
