The Kreutzer Sonata - Leo Tolstoy (I actually read this in Great Short Works.)

Good God, what an intense story. It's all caught up in the voice of a man whose views are at once progressive (women should be treated as human beings) and regressive (but since they aren't they're all whores) as he recounts learning of his wife's humanity once he had killed her. Harrowing and fascinating, and all the better because Tolstoy does not take the time out to tell us which parts we should agree with and which we shouldn't, as he often does, leaving the horrible tangle to us.
