Editorial Reviews

New Yorker
In its scale and scholarly care, Frank's study, even at this preliminary stage, has no rival throughout the extensive critical and biographical literature on Dostoevsky.

From the Publisher
"[A]nother impressive installment in one of modern scholarship's largest biographical achievements."Kirkus Reviews

Donald Fanger
The first and last thing to say about Joseph Frank's ongoing enterprise... is that it is unrivaled in both its ambition and achievement. This is simply the most reliable, detailed, balanced and up to date account we have of the most influential novelist of the last 150 years. It is also the most fascinating... the present volume tells the story of transformation. There is hardly a more dramatic one to be found anywhere.
The Boston Globe
Robin Feuer Miller
Just as Frank's magnificent third volume... unravels an immensefully important and complex period in Dostoevksy's life and, along the way, evokes and explicates the Russia of the mid nineteenth century... Frank's effort as a biographer of Dostoevsky has been a unique and successful experiment in the bipographical form.
Philadelphia Inquirer
Helen Muchnic
...a narrative of such compelling precision, fairness and insight as to give the reader a sense not just of acquaintanceship, but of complete identification with Dostoevsky, of looking through his eyes and understanding just his mind.
Boston Globe
