Summer in Baden-Baden
Author: Leonid Tsypkin

Leonard Tsypkin’s short and frenetic Summer in Baden-Baden is a meditation on the morphic and self-defining nature of memory. Tsypkin portrays the sometimes charming but mostly distressing European travels of Fyodor Dostoyevsky and his second wife, Anna Grigoryevna, and their descent into a woeful situation brought about by the famous author’s gambling habit. Dostoyevsky’s deep-seated insecurities and epileptic seizures are the specters that haunt him throughout the book. In a parallel portion of the story Tsypkin also recounts his own travels to Leningrad to visit the former locations, real and fictional, inhabited by the literary giant.
