Summary: This summer, why not read one of the classics? As a teaser, we offer an excerpt from Dostoyevsky’s timeless classic, in a new translation by Oliver Ready.


Oliver Ready’s newly published translation of Crime and Punishment was short-listed for the prestigious Read Russia translation prize.
(As it turns out, Ready’s translation of Vladimir Sharov’s Before and During took the top honor.) The work is fresh and yet true to the original, a work brilliantly done.
