Demons by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Book DescriptionThis title comes 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.

Books By Author Fyodor Dostoevsky
Crime and Punishment, Paperback (January 2017)
Consumed by the idea of his own special destiny, immured in poverty and deprivation, Rashkolnikov is drawn to commit a terrible crime. In the aftermath, Rashkolnikov is dogged by madness, guilt and a calculating detective. The only hope for redemption, if Rashkolnikov can but recognise it, lies in the virtuous and faithful Sonya.
Very Russian Christmas, Hardback (October 2016)
Nobody does Christmas like the Russians.
Double, Paperback (August 2016)
The Double, Dostoevsky's second published work of fiction, which foreshadows in its themes many of his mature novels, is the surreal and hallucinatory tale of an unfortunate anti-hero, at once chilling in its depiction of the dark sides of human nature and exuberantly comical.
Adolescent, Paperback (June 2016)» View all books by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Both a Bildungsroman and a novel of ideas, dealing with themes such as the relationship between fathers and sons and the role of money in modern society, The Adolescent - here presented in a brand-new translation by Dora O'Brien - shows Dostoevsky at his finest as a social commentator and observer of the workings of a young man's mind.
