Early participation in a literary political group landed the writer in exile in Siberia for nearly a decade, an experience which had a profound influence on Dostoyevskys understanding of fate, the suffering of human beings, and which resulted in a powerful religious conversion. Dostoyevskys works are marked by his penetrating exploration of psychology and morality, which are today cited as highly existentialist. The Landlady tells the story of Billy Weaver, a young man who is venturing out into the world of work, and finds himself checking into an eerie bed and breakfast. The suspense quickly escalates as Billy discovers the secrets held by the inns landlady, secrets which may prove fatal to the young man.
