Crime and Punishment.

I finished Преступление и наказание (Crime and Punishment) a few days ago, and I’ve been mulling it over since then. It’s the first of Dostoevsky’s Late Great Novels I’ve read in Russian, and it would be ridiculous to try to summarize it or make general points about it after all the commentary that’s already piled up. I will say that I had trouble with the melodramatic aspects (the drunken father, the daughter forced into prostitution, the mother who goes mad and drags her little children out ...

The answer to this question turns us to Europe. Some of the players included in this top 20 list of the best players that play elsewhere will surely have a future in North America. Others have already played there. Still, they should all be touted as world-class players. If we’re lucky, we have a good chance of seeing these play...
