    I know, I know, about Constance Garnett skipping things when she couldn’t figure them out, etc., but until she translated Dostoevsky none of us could read him and her versions were the ones in which I discovered him, the only versions we had for many decades. I still love her writing. The Trump comparisons? Absolutely. Just keep telling those lies until the truth doesn’t matter anymore.

    Your Trump comments are spot on. And I wonder if Pynchon isn’t a kind of Dostoevsky living among us? The spectacle we are now witnessing will further mistrust, an increased moral relativism, and an irrational clash of ideologies.
