“it has even bequeathed to us a troupe of American jugglers called the Flying Karamazov Brothers, as remarkale for their occasional skill at throwing around unlikely critical observations as they are for their exceptional skill at throwing around unlikely objects. At one point in their act, a brother juggling swords shares the stage with a brother juggling rubber rats. A sword flies out of its orbit, impaling a rat. The rat-juggler rounds indignantly on his partner. “You dirty brother,” he cries out in passable imitation of James Cagney. “You killed my rat!” This accusation, I believe, addresses a number of issues central to The Brothers Karamazov.”
