This work introduces a Dostoyevsky unfamiliar to most readers, revealing his unexpected talents as a humorist and satirist. While its lighthearted tone and amusing plot make it a joy to read, it also contains the prototypes of characters who appear in his later works.
‘A lively rendering of an unjustly neglected work … a magnificent comic novel’ – Ronald Hingley in The Times Literary Supplement
