The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa

  • Publisher Penguin Classics

  • Year 2002 (1st published 1998)

This book was recommended by a friend, Fran, after I mentioned my interested in ideas of The absurd. It was written on thousands of notebooks and scraps of paper found in a trunk after Pessoa’s death. It’s absolutely miserable through and through but equally beautiful and cathartic.
