In The Master of Petersburg J. M. Coetzee dares to imagine the life of Dostoevsky. Set in 1869, when Dostoevsky was summoned from Germany to St Petersburg by the sudden death of his stepson, this novel is at once a compelling mystery steeped in the atmosphere of pre-revolutionary Russia and a brilliant and courageous meditation on authority and rebellion, art and imagination. Dostoevsky is seen obsessively following his stepsons ghost, trying to ascertain whether he was a suicide or a murder victim and whether he loved or despised his stepfather.

-New edition of Ertes work based upon recent (2016) Hermitage exhibition celebrating his life and work -Newly commissioned text by Hermitage curator Mikhail Dedinkin and Chairman of Estorick Collection, Michael Estorick, as well as contributions by Barbra Streisand and art critics Morgan Falconer and the late Brian Sewell Romain de Tirtoff (1892-1990), who changed his name to Erte (R and T in French) when he left his native St Petersburg for Paris in 1912, became one of the most sought-after artists of the twentieth century. His illustrations for Harpers Bazaar and Vogue remain classics of the genre, proving that mass art can be genuine art. His work as stage, costume and fashion designer in Europe and America combined an eye for fashion and elegance with a sense of theatricality. In the early days Erte worked closely with the couturier Paul Poiret; he then took his remarkable talent to the stage, producing numerous designs for the revues and shows that were so popular at the time, as we well as to film with his work for MGM. Mata Hari, Lillian Gish, Anna Pavlova and George Balanchine were just some of those whose costumes were designed by Erte. Even when his fame dipped, Erte remained true to his lifes work, continuing to create his wonderfully refined and delicate drawings, including the popular Alphabet series.

Includes pictures and an extensive section on Dostoevskys life and works. After spending several years in a sanatorium recovering from an illness that caused him to lose his memory and ability to reason, Prince Myshkin arrives in St. Petersburg and is at once confronted with the stark realities of life in the Russian capital-from greed, murder, and nihilism to passion, vanity, and love. Mocked for his childlike naivety yet valued for his openness and understanding, Prince Myshkin finds himself entangled with two women in a position he cannot bring himself to resolve. Dostoevsky, who wrote that in the character of Prince Myshkin he hoped to portray a wholly virtuous man, shows the workings of the human mind and our relationships with others in all their complex and contradictory nature.
