Grim AND expensive!

2017-04-11-grim-and-expensive
A British woman who recently bought a £14 box of books ended up with ridiculously valuable find: an English-language, first edition print of Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. (I love that subtitle: "A Russian Realistic Novel".) The lucky woman chose to sell the book at auction, where it fetched a hefty £13,500. Personally, that's what you'd have to pay me to re-read it, but I guess the audience for Russian realism is bigger than I thought.
