Although I know Dostoevsky wasn't her favorite writer, Irina is completely prepared with facts, dates, personal relationships, anecdotes, etc relating to his life and works. She knows where all the monuments and plaques are hidden, and it was quite a memorable experience to walk along streets and squares I've read in his works so many times. I forgot the number of steps from Raskolnikov's to the old woman's. She knew, and she knew the route also. That put a smile on my face. Awesome job Irina. Thanks.
