The petty demon by Fyodor Sologub( Book )

8 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'No, my dear contemporaries, it is of you that I have written my novel about the little demon ... about you.'. Thus Sologub emphatically refuted suggestions that The Little Demon (1907) contained elements of autobiography. This is perhaps unsurprising, given that his schoolmaster hero is one of the great comic monsters of twentieth-century fiction. Peredonov is exercised first by the idea of marrying to gain promotion, later by arson, torture and murder. His descent into paranoia and sexual perversion (he subsequently lent his name to the brand of sado-masochism known in Russia as Peredonovism) mirrors the obsessions of a petty provincial society, tyrannized by triviality and senseless bureaucracy. The Little Demon is a formidable technical achievement in its portrayal of a spiritual wasteland. It brought Sologub immediate and lasting fame, and is arguably the finest Russian novel to have come out of the Symbolist movement

The crocodile by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

3 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The civil servant Ivan Matveich and his wife Yelena Ivanovna are spectators of an exhibition in a shopping arcade, of a crocodile owned by a German, when Ivan is suddenly swallowed alive by the animal. Unsuccessful in his attempts to be freed from his prison, due to the German's concern for his crocodile and excessive desire for compensation, the civil servant gradually comes to appreciate his new environment, while his wife begins to enjoy her new-found freedom. Inspired by Gogol's surreal tales, Dostoevsky's hilarious story has been interpreted by some as a vitriolic piece of social criticism and a veiled attack on the revolutionary philosopher Nikolai Chernyshevsky
