Biography
Fyodor Dostoevsky’s (1821–1881) first novel, Poor Folk, was published in 1846 to great acclaim. In the early 1860s he edited two magazines, Time and Epoch, in collaboration with his brother Mikhail. Both magazines were closed by the censors, and in 1864 his wife and brother both died, leaving him in charge of their families and deeply in debt. In that same year he wrote Notes from Underground, which was the prelude to the five great novels that crowned his work: Crime and Punishment (1866), The Idiot (1868), Demons (1872), The Adolescent (1875), and The Brothers Karamazov (1880).

She wanders aimlessly through age, age
being a nutrient that washes from the cliff face
into the soil.

Absence a rhythm in the daily round, rows
carved into furrows in the ground or the folds
of the robe, not planted with seed.

He has already, over the course of months, designed his own sanctuary, his own adventure. It has yet to be built, but it will be an ordinary house, except for the cellar, where a secret tunnel leads far away into deep woods, to his real home, enormous and impregnable and peopled by machines to take care of all his needs.

We sipped a fumé blanc, much too good for us. Elsa, quite content with a weak strain of iced tea, happy to be here at all. We had not known from lively e-mails and upbeat telephone chats that her persistent cough had taken a turn to the prospect of dying.
