Ride the (Moscow) Subway with Dostoevsky

Craig Morgan Teicher -- August 12th, 2010

The Moscow subway system just opened its Dostoevsky subway station, featuring scary looking murals of the author and scenes from his novels, as you can see from the picture above.  NPR has the whole story and a few more pics.

So what American authors do you think deserve a subway station in New York?  Paul Auster in Park Slope?  Scenes from Bellow’s Mr. Sammler’s Planet in an uptown Manhattan Station?  Some kind of snarled John Ashbery mural in the confusing transfer hallways of Delancey Street?

    I’d skip the authors and go right to the story. How about a moody Holden Caulfied at a station near Central Park? Or a scene from “Make Way for Ducklings” in Boston, near the Commons?
