A Writer's LifeBook - 1987
Kjetsaa tells the dramatic story of how Dostoyevsky, the son of an irascible minor aristocrat, rose rapidly to fame as a writer and just as rapidly lost everything--almost including his life--for his liberal political views. Kjetsaa vividly recreates Dostoyevsky's last-minute rescue from a firing squad and explores how his long imprisonment in Siberia profoundly shaped his vision as a novelist.
