›Die Idiotin‹ ist ein unvergesslicher Roman, der am Elite-College Harvard spielt - von einer der originellsten Stimmen der amerikanischen Gegenwartsliteratur: Elif Batuman. New Jersey, 1995: Selin, Tochter türkischer Immigranten, jung, hinreißend und ahnungslos, zieht aus, um in Harvard Literatur zu studieren. Die College-Wohnheime sind mit Albert Einstein-Postern und Lavalampen dekoriert, das Internet ist noch jung und die nächtlichen E-Mails, die ihr Ivan, der ungarische Mathestudent, schickt, sind ebenso bezaubernd wie unverständlich. Aber Selin manövriert sich tapfer durch die ersten Stürme der Erwachsenenjahre. Sie reist mit ihrer Freundin Svetlana nach Paris, lernt Russisch und Taekwondo – und dass die Liebe flüchtig ist. Ein Buch über die magische Zeit des Erwachsenwerdens und das Porträt einer jungen Frau, die auszieht, um ihren Platz in der Welt zu suchen – hellwach und feinsinnig erzählt.

When brutal landowner Fyodor Karamazov is murdered, the lives of his sons are changed irrevocably: Mitya, the sensualist, whose bitter rivalry with his father immediately places him under suspicion for parricide; Ivan, the intellectual, whose mentaltortures drive him to breakdown; the spiritual Alyosha, who tries to heal the family's rifts; and the shadowy figure of their bastard half-brother Smerdyakov. As the ensuing investigation and trial reveal the true identity of the murderer, Dostoyevsky's dark masterpiece evokes a world where the lines between innocence and corruption, good and evil, blur and everyone's faith in humanity is tested.

'Notes from Underground' (1864) is a study of a single character, 'the real man of the Russian majority', and a revelation of Dostoyevsky's own deepest beliefs. One of his best critics has said of the first part that it forms his 'most utterly naked pages. Never afterwards was he so fully and openly to reveal the inmost recesses, unmeant for display, of his heart.' 'The Double' (1846) is the nightmarish story of Mr Golyadkin, a man who is haunted or possessed by his own double. Is 'Mr Golyadkinjunior' really a double or simply a fearful side of his own nature? This uncertainty is what gives urgency and horror to a tale which may be read as a classic study of human breakdown.

Pyotr and Stavrogin are the leaders of a Russian revolutionary cell. Their aim is to overthrow the Tsar, destroy society and seize power for themselves. Together they train terrorists who are willing to go to any lengths to achieve their goals – even if the mission means suicide. But when it seems the group is about to be discovered, will their recruits be willing to kill one of their own circle in order to cover their tracks? Partly based on the real-life case of a student murdered by his fellow revolutionaries, Dostoyevsky’s sprawling novel is a powerful and prophetic, yet lively and often comic depiction of nineteenth-century Russia, and a savage indictment of the madness and self-destruction of those who use violence to serve their beliefs

With their penetrating psychological insight and their emphasis on human dignity, respect and forgiveness, Dostoyevsky's early short stories contain the seeds of the themes that came to his major novels. Poor Folk, the author's first great literary triumph, is the story of a tragic relationship between an impoverished copy clerk and a young seamstress, told through their passionate letters to each other. In The Landlady Dostoyevsky portrays a dreamer hero who is captivated by a curious couple and becomes their lodger. Mr Prokharchin, inspired by a true story, is a sly comedy centring on an eccentric miser, and Polzunkov is a powerful character sketch which, in common with the other tales in this volume, questions the very nature of existence.

In The Devils Dostoyevsky created a chilling and prophetic story of revolutionaries and nihilists plotting the overthrow of the Russian government and the downfall of the Russian church. It focuses on the complex and tormented character of Stavrogin, a desperate man whose loss of faith makes him dangerous. Believing he is beyond guilt and remorse, he commits terrible crimes, infects others with ideas he does not believe in and accepts love he does not deserve. Yet Stavrogin is only one of a small band of rebels whose hunger for a more democratic, Western system threatens the fabric of Russian society, and The Devils is a brilliant psychological analysis of a group of people possessed by a destructive passion for revolution.

Selbst Liebhaber ihrer sechs Romane wissen häufig nicht, dass Jane Austen schon zwischen ihrem elften und siebzehnten Lebensjahr eine ganze Reihe kürzerer fiktionaler Texte schrieb. Diese blieben lange im Besitz der Familie, die es nicht für angebracht hielt, »diesen Werdegang der Öffentlichkeit zu enthüllen«. Janes Jugendwerke wurden deshalb zum allergrößten Teil erst im 20. Jahrhundert zugänglich. Es sind Texte von überbordender Phantasie, einem frechen Humor, einer unbändigen Lust, zu provozieren, die Ursula und Christian Grawe erstmals vollständig ins Deutsche übersetzt haben.
