My All Time Favorite Novel: The Book of Disquiet

Okay, let me be honest. That was clickbait. The book down below isn’t a novel at all. Gotcha! But still, it is a book, with words and pages and all those amazing bookish things we readers love. Sorry about the deception. That being said, my favorite book is The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa. Pessoa is a Portuguese poet that made his mark in the early 20th century. He was a poet, a critic, a writer, a translator and more. Plus, he had over 100 psuedonyms! Much of the literary work coming out of Portugal during the early 1900s was written by this one man under one of his pen names. All while maintaining a day job. Well, enough fangirling, I guess it’s time for me to share why The Book of Disquiet: A Factless Autobiography is my favorite.
