fun. - The Gambler /// We were barely 18 when we'd crossed collective hearts. It was cold, but it got warm when you'd barely crossed my eye. and then you turned, put out your hand, and you asked me to dance. I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight. <3 #so romantic
The Gambler is a short novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky about a young tutor in the employment of a formerly wealthy Russian general. The novella reflects Dostoyevsky's own addiction to roulette, which was in more ways than one the inspiration for the book: Dostoyevsky completed the novella under a strict deadline to pay off gambling debts.
