Dostoyevsky Wannabe Originals
These are the archetype, the template, the DW ‘literary standard’, underground classics but also, they're only books. A Dostoyevsky Wannabe Original is 'ice-cool' (Jon Leon). If you don't buy them someone else will and you'll be left with egg on your face.
So buy them, read them, look at them, keep them, lose them, scan them in to see if your new scanner works, write in their margins, sell them on eBay, leave them on a train, don’t read them, put them on a bookshelf, forget about them, understand what it’s like for the people who wrote them, give them away.
