9780099140016: Demons: A Novel in Three Parts

From the award-winning translators of Crime and Punishment, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky.

Based on a real-life crime which horrified Russia in 1869, Dostoevsky intended his novel to castigate the fanaticism of his country's new revolutionaries, particularly those known as Nihilists. Blackly funny, grotesque and shocking, it is a disturbing portrait of five young men saturated in ideology and bent on destruction, and a compelling study of terrorism

Review:

"Volokhonsky's and Pevear's translation brings to the surface all of Dostoevsky's subtle linguistic and nationalist humour, and the copious notes are indispensable for making one's way through the thicket of 19th-century Russian politics" ( Kirkus Reviews)

"An outstanding achievement" ( John Bayley)

"As close to Dostoevsky's Russian as is possible in English" ( Chicago Tribune)

"Required reading for anyone who wants to understand the mind of the terrorist" ( Sunday Times)

"Marvellous...fluid and well-paced translation" ( Observer)
