Crime and Punishment

Dostoevsky wrote about the world he knew and so did Tolstoy. The funny thing is that both men were religious fanatics, each in his own way. Dostoevsky by virtue of escaping from a firing squad, and the great T by virtue of being an aristocrat. But neither had a sustained interest in health, which is why Crime and Punishment is a punishment to read, in part, when it starts to moralize.
