  Curled Up With a Good Book
*A Curse on Dostoevsky* by Atiq Rahimini
Enter to win a copy
of Atiq Rahimini's
A Curse on Dostoevsky
Rassoul remembers reading Crime and Punishment as a student of Russian literature in Leningrad, so when, with axe in hand, he kills the wealthy old lady who prostitutes his beloved Sophia, he thinks twice before taking her money or killing the woman whose voice he hears from another room. He wishes only to expiate his crime and be rightfully punished. Out of principle, he gives himself up to the police. But his country, after years of civil war, has fallen into chaos. In Kabul there is only violence, absurdity, and deafness, and Rassoulís desperate attempt to be heard turns into a farce. Enter to win Atiq Rahimini's A Curse on Dostoevsky.
