    • Dostoyevsky himself was a compulsive gambler, but he could usually recover his losses by getting down to work.

      The Gambler was written under pressure from a greedy publisher and with the rights to all of his previous works at stake. Dostoevsky dictated the book in four weeks of the year 1866 to the star pupil of a Moscow short-hand school. And then he married her.
