"The Gambler" by  Fyodor Dostoyevsky

The Gambler

Fyodor Dostoyevsky, translator Charles James Hogarth

The Gambler is a short novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky about a young tutor in the employment of a formerly wealthy Russian general. The novella reflects Dostoyevsky’s own addiction to roulette, which was in more ways than one the inspiration for the book: Dostoyevsky completed the novella under a strict deadline to pay off gambling debts.
