A psychological thriller and satire that deals with totalitarian thought, Hogg's book is an astonishing tale of possession, murder, despair, and suicide in an era of political unrest and sectarian strife in 18th century Scotland. Set before and after the Act of Union (1707), the book tells the story from two very different angles of young Robert Wringham, whose debased Calvinism leaves him vulnerable to the isidious logic of a mysteriously diabolical stranger, leading him to commit heinous crimes and to finally taking his own life. Anticipates the work of Poe, Hawthorne, and Melville, as well as Jekyll and Hyde, Originally published in 1824. Pocket-sized. Very Good, almost like new. Konemann. Hb, Dj. USED. $5.00
