This grotesque little story owes much to E. T. A. Hoffman and Gogol and does not even begin to suggest the mature Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Yet it is fun to read about this wizened little old man who rents a corner of a room in a Petersburg boardinghouse and is ignored for years until ...

until the establishment begins to fill up with younger bachelors who work in the chancelleries and who begin to taunt Semyon Ivanovich Prokharchin beyond his ability to respond.He runs off for a few days, is seen with low company, returns in the middle of the night -- and the persecution begins to ramp up even more.

Finally, a drunk slashes his mattress, which scares Mr. P. out of his life. He dies, and the mattress is found stuffed with 2,500 rubles -- not a fortune, but a tidy some nonetheless.I enjoyed reading this little sketch, but have no doubt that it confused Dostoyevskys contemporaries. Still, if you idolize him as much as I do, I suggest you give Mr. Prokharchin a try.
