William Mills Todd III (introducer) is a professor of Slavic languages at Harvard.

Reviews

"A book that manages like no other to plunge fearlessly into suffering while at the same time illuminating the enduring, almost unspeakable beauty of the human." --Laurie Sheck, The Atlantic

"One of the most excoriating, compelling, and remarkable books ever written: and without question one of the greatest." --A. C. Grayling

"A masterpiece . . . a fact of world literature just as important as the densely dramatic Brothers Karamazov or the brilliantly subtle and terrifying Devils. . . . [an] excellent new translation." --The Guardian

"McDuff's language is rich and alive." --The New York Times Book Review

"[The Idiot's] narrative is so compelling." --Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
