Il problema che ho affrontato in Io e Lui,” disse Moravia in un’intervista, “è terribilmente serio, anche se l. a. veste è comica. È l. a. sessualità, da una parte, personificata in ‘lui’, cioè nella virilità fisiologica e dall’altra parte, l. a. spinta contraria alla sessualità verso una meta artistica, intellettuale, sociale e civile.” Federico, “Rico”, è appunto un intellettuale velleitario, uno sceneggiatore che vuole diventare regista. l. a. sua personalità risulta fortemente scissa: se l’io sta a guardare, lui agisce: l’inconscio parla, il sesso ha una voce che ordina e impone. Ne risulta un andamento esilarante, pieno di invenzioni francamente inattese: nella folle vicenda di questo regista mancato, nel costante dialogo tra il protagonista coatto, il suo sesso prepotente e il suo rimorso culturale (sublimazione o desublimazione?), los angeles nevrosi, interpreta in chiave comica o tragicomica, non è lontana dall’assurdo.

Dostoyevski'nin ilk dönem öyküleri... Daha önce yayımladığımız Beyaz Geceler ve İkiz gibi uzun öykülerden sonra Dostoyevski, kısalı uzunlu bir dizi metin kaleme almıştı. Yazarın sürgün dönüşü öncesi yazdığı öykülerin tamamı, böylece, bu öykü kitabıyla birlikte yeniden çevrilip Can Yayınları'nın Klasikler dizisinde yerini almış oluyor. "Dokuz Mektuplu Roman", "Yufka Yürek" gibi ünlü öykülerin de yer aldığı bu kitap, Dostoyevski'nin gençlik yıllarında edebiyata bakışını, etkilendiği kaynakları, konu edindiği meseleleri göster­mesi bakımından çok önemli. Bu öykülerde, sonraki yıllarda yazacağı Suç ve Ceza, Karamazov Kardeşler gibi büyük romanların işaretleri var. Özellikle uyumsuz kişiliklerin, deliliğin sınırında yaşayanların, toplumsal konum ve mevki meselesiyle kavgalı karakterlerin yer aldığı öykülerde Gogol'ün etkisi iyice hissedilirken, Dostoyevski'nin yazar kimliğinin henüz oturmadığı da gözlemleniyor.
