Dostoevsky conceived Demons as a "novel-pamphlet" in which he would say everything about the plague of materialist ideology that he saw infecting his native land. He emerged with, in 1872, a ferociously funny and dark novel. Alongside its relentlessly escalating plot of conspiracy and assassination, Demons (earlier titled The Possessed) is a blistering comedy of ideas run amok. Like all of Dostoevsky's novels, it is also a riot of literary voices, whose profusion, energy, and variety are rendered wonderfully in this new English version by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, winners of the PEN Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize.

"[Pevear and Volokhonsky] have managed to capture and differentiate the character's many voices...They come into their own when faced with Dostoevsky's wonderfully quirky use of varied speech patterns...A capital job of restoration."--Los Angeles Times
