and see for yourself."

Two haunting visions of other worlds: in Berkoff's Hell the
ever-failing Harry renders his ultimate appeal for a little
sympathy and company, and a would-be suicide dreams of
paradise in The Dream of a Ridiculous Man, Dosteovsky's
feverish and ever-relevant appeal for a more caring world.
