"This book is 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'.
