Choosing the book by the cover
This book, Under Western Eyes, leapt put at me in the library because of the cover illustration. It could not be closer to echoing the themes of Petersburg by Andrei Bely. Having read a fair few short books by Joseph Conrad the author as well as the subject was attractive. The first post on the contents, with a chance to see if they match up to the ideas the cover inspires, will come tonight.
