The Gambler and Other Stories is Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s collection of one novella and six short stories reflecting his own life – indeed, ‘The Gambler’, a story of a young tutor in the employment of a formerly wealthy Russian General, was written under a strict deadline so he could pay off his roulette debts. This volume includes ‘Bobok’, the tale of a frustrated writer visiting a cemetery and enjoying the gossip of the dead; ‘The Dream of a Ridiculous Man’, the story of one man’s plan to commit suicide and the troubling dream that follows, as well as ‘A Christmas Party and a Wedding’, ‘A Nasty Story’ and ‘The Meek One’.
