will-self-dostoyevski-_last-phase_-6-plain_1344x750

Following his sold-out talks on Joseph Conrad, Franz Kafka and James Joyce, Will Self is back with another tour de force exploration of Dostoevsky’s Brothers Karamazov.

Dostoevsky’s nightmarish novel, the story of a penny-pinching lecher and his four sons, is one of the supreme achievements in literature. Set in Russia on the brink of socialist ferment, The Brothers Karamazov is a study of patricide, a satire on human corruption, and a complex spiritual drama. ‘The thing about Dostoevsky’s characters’, said David Foster Wallace, ‘is that they are alive’; in this talk, Will Self, will discuss the astounding vitality of this monumental work.
