Summary

A short story of a troubled 19th c. Russian bureaucrat in two parts. The first is a bit confusing as it is only a psychological prologue by the man on himself. The second part is the actual story, which involves the man and his terrible relations with his old school colleagues, and with a young prostitute. This is a great introduction to Dostoevsky I think, since it is so short and yet fully "Dostoevskian."
