Confession of a Murderer (Paperback)

Joseph Roth

-  

'I have killed and yet I consider myself to be a good man.' So begins the tale of former Russian secret agent Golubchik, holding court after hours in a tiny Russian restaurant on Paris's left bank. As he recounts his tale to a rapt audience they find themselves drawn into his futile quest to claim the noble name of his father, his destructive love affair with a beautiful model and his hatred for his half-brother, the rightful Prince. Confession of a Murderer spans rural Russia, cosmopolitan St Petersburg and pre-First World War Paris and alternately fascinates and horrifies the reader with its wild story of collaboration, deception and murder in the days leading up to the Russian Revolution.
