"The Double" by Fyodor Dostoevsky

An anxious Mr. Golyadkin ponders a visit to Dr. Rutenspitz.
"Will it be all right, I wonder?" pondered our hero, stopping at the entrance of a five-storeyed house in Liteynaya Street.


"Where to?" asked Petrushka.... "The Izmaylovsky Bridge"


"At last, just by the Izmaylovsky Bridge, Mr. Golyadkin indicated a house"



After being turned away from the Berendeyev home, Golyadkin drives off.

"As soon as they had passed the Semyonovsky Bridge, he ordered the driver to turn into a side stret and stop outside a rather unpretentious-looking restaurant.


Having been humiliated at Klara's party, Golyadkin rushes frantically along the banks of the Fontanka Canal. "At last, his strength exhausted, Mr. Golaydkin stopped, and leaning over the railings like someone with a sudden nose-bleed, stared fixedly at the troubled black waters of the Fontanka."


"A rapid glance around showed that he had without noticing it run the whole of his usual route along the Fontanka...."


He had "crossed the Anichkov Bridge"


"At last he caught sight of his stranger at the corner of Italyanskaya Street."
