about this book

Notes From Underground marks the frontier, not only between nineteenth- and twentieth-century fiction, but between two centuries' visions of the self. For the unnamed narrator is a multiplicity of selves, each at war with the others--all at war with everything else. Now Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, whose translations of Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov (both available in Vintage Classics paperback) have become the standard versions in English, give us a superb new edition of Dostoevsky's classic that conveys both the tragedy and the tormented comedy of the original Russian.
