Artist Statement

"This cover demonstrates the tormenting dichotomy of moral nihilism and guilt which overwhelms and agonizes the protagonist in the novel. The many dualities which afflict the characters are expressed by the emphasized ampersand and opposing text placement. The somewhat haunting feel is an expression of Dostoevsky\'s bleak backdrop of St. Petersburg and his perceived sickened Russian society. " - Marissa Molinaro
