Contributor History

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).

I have taken a blow to the head.

     Not one blow. Many blows. But one was worse than the others.

     And my larynx is not my own. My heart isn’t either. But I have a phantom larynx and a phantom heart.

We found the laptop in Cressey’s round room. It was black, thin, light as wood, and belonged to Dr. Marcus, the man who came on to me once, the one who smokes dope in the eaves, the philologist or psychologist. I can’t get these “terms” straight in my head anymore, what with these drugs they feed us. The afternoon pills, especially.

We turn the floodlights on the actors, extras in one of the world’s great short stories, surprising them mid-escapade, nocturnal animals caught playing dress up with our clothing, our fanciest possessions. Pearl choker on a possum, suit jacket on a raccoon. A skunk, a lynx, two tubby foxes moonlighting as twin nephews or as young men dating our daughters.
