"White Nights" is the third major Dostoyevsky short story everyone should read, "A Faint Heart" and "The Christmas Tree & Wedding" being the other two. This is a series of Winesburg, Ohio like moments where a woman and man meet accidentally on the first night; proceed to meet again on the second and third, almost fall in love and at the last minute the former lover of the woman returns to take her away. However, the point is the man had a moment, a glorious moment, for the first time in his life when he had something special. Is that enough? The author leaves us with that final question.
