A psychological thriller before its time, James Hogg’s The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner, published in 1824, takes us back to the world of eighteenth-century Scotland into a mind driven to commit murder after being haunted by religious obsession. The events are told from several different viewpoints, acting to dissolve truth and reality. This twisted tale is a disturbing story of the dark legacy of Calvinist doctrine and the madness to which it led one man. Misunderstood and neglected for more than a century, The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner is now regarded as a classic of the supernatural, comparable to Frankenstein, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, or Dracula.

Author Bio: James Hogg

James Hogg (1770–1835) was born near Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. From a young age he was determined to be a poet like Burns. He became friends with Walter Scott and in 1810 he went to Edinburgh to seek a literary career. His best-known work, The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner made little impact when it first appeared anonymously in 1824. He continued to publish poetry and prose until his death.
