Confession of a Murderer Told in One Night

by Joseph Roth

If you want to be really scared, read this by candlelight in a dark room with the curtains drawn on a storm tossed winter's night. And if someone knocks on your door, you might die of fright.


Rather I was like a cold and objective judge who watches the exploits of the criminals whom he wil later have to judge. I pronounced judgment then. It was death. Death for Krapotkin!
