How far would you go to escape the real world?
The underground man had always felt like an outsider. He doesn't want to be like other people, working in the 'ant-hill' of society. So he decides to withdraw from the world, scrawling a series of darkly sarcastic notes about the torment he is suffering. Angry and alienated, his only comfort is the humiliation of others.
Is he going mad? Or is it the world around him that's insane?

'Hilarious yet disturbing' ( Sunday Times )From the Publisher:
A new translation of the most important of Dostoevsky’s shorter works.
Dostoevsky's Underground Man is a combination of the psychologically tortured poor clerk and the frustrated dreamer of his early stories, but his Notes from the Underground is a precursor of the great novels of ideas of his later career, with their ongoing central concern of the nature of free will.
