This 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.
