Ever since it's publication in 1866, Crime and Punishment has intrigued readers and sorely tested translators, the best of whom seem to capture one fact of Dostoevsky's masterpiece while missing the rest. Now, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky render this elusive and wildly innovative novel with an energy, suppleness, and range of voice that do full justice to the genius of its creator.
"Reaches as close to Dostoevsky's Russian as is possible in English...The Pevear and Volokhonsky translation will become the standard English version." —Chicago Tribune
