Publisher’s Description: 

From Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, the highly acclaimed translators of War and Peace, Doctor Zhivago, and Anna Karenina, which was an Oprah Book Club pick and million-copy bestseller, The Eternal Husband and Other Stories brings together five of Dostoevskys short masterpieces.

Filled with many of the themes and concerns central to his great novels, these short works display the full range of Dostoevskys genius. The centerpiece of this collection, the short novel The Eternal Husband, describes the almost surreal meeting of a cuckolded widower and his dead wifes lover. Dostoevskys dark brilliance and satiric vision infuse the other four tales with all-too-human characters. The Eternal Husband and Other Stories is sterling Dostoevskya collection of emotional power and uncompromising insight into the human condition.
