Dostoevsky’s titanic novels are transformed into spellbinding drama. The passionate Karamazov brothers spring to life, led by their rogue of a father, who entertains himself by drinking, womanizing, and pitting his three sons against each other. In The Idiot, meet the childlike Prince Myshkin, as he returns to the decadent social whirl of St. Petersburg. The two most beautiful women in town compete for his affections, in a duel that grows increasingly dangerous.

About the Author

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (1821–1881) was a Russian novelist, journalist, and short-story writer whose psychological penetration into the darkest recesses of the human heart had a profound and universal influence on the twentieth-century novel. He was born in Moscow, the son of a surgeon. Leaving the study of engineering for literature, he published Poor Folk in 1846. As a member of revolutionary circles in St. Petersburg, he was condemned to death in 1849. A last-minute reprieve sent him to Siberia for hard labor. Returning to St. Petersburg in 1859, he worked as a journalist and completed his masterpiece, Crime and Punishment, as well as other works, including The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov.

About the Narrators

Neil Simon, Americas most prolific and beloved playwright, is the author of more than thirty plays and screenplays. As a child he found refuge and inspiration watching early comedians like Charlie Chaplin, eventually deciding to incorporate comedy into his many works. He was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and three Tony Awards and received more Oscar and Tony Award nominations than any other writer. Despite this, many still feel he is underrated. He now splits his time between New York and Los Angeles.

Ping Wu is an actor known for his roles in Pearl Harbor, The Hunt for Red October, Seinfeld, and I Love You, Man.
