By Fyodor Dostoyevsky
«Esta obra singular, concebida por el autor como interludio entre novelas o trabajo preparatorio para El adolescente y Los hermanos Karamázov, es imprescindible para conocer y comprender al escritor y a l. a. persona.» Jesús García Gabaldón, El País.
A raíz de aceptar l. a. dirección de los angeles revista El Ciudadano, comenzó a redactar el que habría de ser su libro más own, extraño y desconocido. En Diario de un escritor el gran novelista ruso privilegia su compromiso ethical con los sucesos más acuciantes de su tiempo, a través de una entreverada mezcla de géneros –autobiografía, ficción, ensayo, crónicas judiciales, necrológicas, estampas de costumbres, breves tratados sobre el carácter nacional-, de los angeles que resulta un experimento de arte indispensable, un triunfo de los angeles pasión por l. a. libertad humana.
En esta selección del inmenso cajón de sastre que es el Diario, impecablemente confeccionada y traducida por Víctor Gallego, se ha prescindido de consideraciones y polémicas hoy trasnochadas. Dos temas obsesivos, profundamente dostoievskianos, recorren sus páginas: los malos tratos a los niños en l. a. familia y las causas de los suicidios. Junto a los angeles ardorosa defensa de l. a. piedad y los angeles justicia, se encuentran también aquí los mejores relatos del autor: «La mansa», «El sueño de un hombre ridículo», «El mujik Marei» y, en especial, «Bobok», que constituye, según Bajtin, «casi un microcosmos de toda su obra».

Dad drove fast and sang really loud, and locks of his hair fell into his face and life was a little bit scary but still a lot of fun. But when Dad pulled out a bottle of what Mom called. "the hard stuff," she got kind of frantic, because after working on the bottle for a while, Dad turned into an angry-eyed stranger who threw around furniture and threatened to beat up Mom or anyone else who got in his way. When he'd had his fill of cussing and hollering and smashing things up, he'd collapse. But Dad drank hard liquor only when we had money, which wasn't often, so life was mostly good in those days.
A waitress with red fingernails and blue-black hair asked if we wanted a Coca-Cola or, heck, even a beer, because we'd been through a lot that night. Brian and Lori said yes, please, to Cokes. I asked if I might please have a Shirley Temple, which was what Dad bought me whenever he took me to a bar. For some reason, the waitress laughed. The people at the bar kept making jokes about women running naked out of the burning hotel. All I had on was my underwear, so I kept the blanket wrapped tightly around me.
We moved around like nomads. We lived in dusty little mining towns in Nevada, Arizona, and California. They were usually nothing but a tiny cluster of sad, sunken shacks, a gas station, a dry-goods store, and a bar or two. They had names like Needles and Bouse, Pie, Goffs, and Why, and they were near places like the Superstition Mountains, the dried-up Soda Lake, and the Old Woman Mountain. The more desolate and isolated a place was, the better Mom and Dad liked it. Dad would get a job as an electrician or engineer in a gypsum or copper mine.
