The Life of a Stupid Man

Brand: Penguin Classics   |   Status: Hết hàng

'a sort of literature-ified autobiography (it seems), and very posey and elegant rather than passionate and sincere, but despite this and because it's short, where beauty and elegance can work as melancholy, it somehow does manage to be a good version of 'i was a bit superficial and then got pierced by love and now i'm an old/er man with regrets' and is so beautifully written (and foreign enough) that it is a different enough working of the topic and worth reading. Best of the Penguin 80p books.' - Amazon Reviewer

'What is the life of a human being - a drop of dew, a flash of lightning? This is so sad, so sad.'

Autobiographical stories from one of Japan's masters of modernist story-telling.
