The Knot of Vipers by Francois Mauriac

Originally published as Le Noeud de Vipiers in 1932. A rich but wretchedly unhappy miser approaches the end of his life, and tries in a series of reflections to figure out how it has all gone wrong.

Suffocating in his own avarice and bitterness, is there anything that can be done to save this lost soul? Mauriac ( conveys some deep religious psychology here.
