A book that is difficult to digest

A book that is difficult to digest

Osamu Dazai is a well-known writer in Japan, and at first this work seems to us just a narration of the life and state of mind of a character, but what this character describes is nothing more than the author's life being almost his own biography.

Is wearing a dress mask acceptable?

Is wearing a dress mask acceptable?

The cover of the book, which represents a jester, exemplifies well the character who dresses up as this figure in order to hide himself and his feelings towards life in society. Thus following in a life of "Divine Comedy" and I put it in this sense of living life as a happy "clown" for others, but living a hell inside.

I don't recommend it if you are a sensitive person, especially because of the topics that this book addresses and it gains even greater weight when you realize that everything narrated was in fact the life of a real and physical being of our world and not just a fictional character. You connect with the feelings of existential emptiness.

I highly recommend the experience to anyone who feels ready and interested in books that put you in an already unbalanced state of mental health.
