“If I am the chief of sinners, I am the chief of sufferers also. I could not think that this earth contained a place for sufferings and terrors so unmanning.”
So writes Robert Louis Stevenson in his psychological thriller The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a case study of what we now call paranoid-schizophrenia. The collection includes some of Stevenson’s grimmest short fiction: “Lodging for the Night,”
“The Suicide Club,”
Jenny Davidson received her doctorate from Yale, and currently teaches English literature at Columbia University.
