Follow-up on Soviet Dostoevsky

In a previous post I asked about how Dostoevsky's work was received in Soviet Russia and got a lot of great answers -- thanks!

The subject was and still is of a lot of interest to me, so I'm currently working on a paper on the subject. A couple people mentioned that Lenin's wife blacklisted Demons (and possibly other Dostoevsky works) when she was involved with the censorship department. Does anyone know of a book or journal article I could find that would verify this? Somehow I don't think "LJ Comment" would go over very well as a cited source for my paper. Thanks! :)
