7 DOSTOYEVSKY, FYODOR. The Possessed.
New American Library, NY: 1962. First Signet Edition. Nineth Printing. s Softcover. Reading copy.

In this story of misfits who believe in nothing and wish only to destroy, Dostoyevsky is everywhere concerned with the passion man demonstrates for the lie in order to create a chaos that mirrors his tortured soul. Includes an afterword by Marc Slonim. Translated from the Russian by Andrew R. MacAndrew.
