The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.
by Edward Docx
Set in St. Petersburg, Docx’s novel offers a Dostoyevskian mix of rich prose, haunting scenery, well-buried secrets and engrossing characters. This is a great bedtime read, but beware, Docx offers a window on a gritty, dark St. Petersburg – not the one you would likely want to visit, except through fiction.
