No Longer Human - Osamu Dazai


No Longer Human provides a great depiction of a young man driven to ruin and isolation thanks to a severe case of anxiety, depression, and alcohol and drug abuse. There is also a nonchalant flow to the writing that makes it very natural and real. Also, given that the book is small, Dazai does a fantastic job conveying emotions as there were points where I felt quite uncomfortable to go on.
