Mitya has been through the preliminary hearings and incarcerated for his father's murder, and now I read the conversation in Book 10 of Dostoyevsky's Brothers Karamazov between Kolya the almost 14 year old and Alyosha, Mitya's younger brother. I think it is meant as comic relief but in the midst of tragedy. I hope so for I laughed all the way through. What a stretch of our imaginations our author does!
