This title comes from the award-winning translators of "Crime and Punishment", Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. The apology and confession of a minor mid-19th-century Russian official, "Notes from Underground" is a half-desperate, half-mocking political critique and a powerful, at times absurdly comical, account of man's breakaway from society and descent 'underground'.

Literary modernism and various schools of psychology and theology have been deeply changed by his ideas. He died in 1881 in St Petersburg, Russia. Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky were awarded the PEN Book-of-the-Month Club Translation for their version of The Brothers Karamazov. They are married and live in France.
