The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner  (1824) 
by James Hogg

The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner was published by the Scottish author James Hogg in 1824. Considered in turn a Gothic novel, a psychological case study of an unreliable narrator, and an examination of totalitarian thought, the ultimately unclassifiable novel, set in a pseudo-Christian world of angels, devils, and demonic possession, is on the rise in academic circles. It has received wide acclaim for its probing quest into the nature of religious fanaticism and Calvinist predestination. Excerpted from The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
