The Book of Disquiet

by Fernando Pessoa
£8.99   paperback  Profile Books Ltd (Serpent's Tail) (2010)

The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa This is a prize-winning international classic, first published in English by Serpent's Tail in 1993.
 
Sitting at his desk, Bernardo Soares imagined himself free forever of Rua dos Douradores, of his boss Vasques, of Moreira the book-keeper, of all the other employees, the errand boy, the post boy, even the cat. But if he left them all tomorrow and discarded the suit of clothes he wears, what else would he do? Because he would have to do something. And what suit would he wear? Because he would have to wear another suit.
 
A self-deprecating reflection on the sheer distance between the loftiness of his feelings and the humdrum reality of his life, The Book of Disquiet is a classic of existentialist literature.
