Fernando Pessoa ~ The Book of Disquiet

I was running late for work, due to an unexpected rainstorm. When I got out of the cab I dropped my copy of this book into a large puddle. The book opened and fell face down and what wasn't immediately soaked caught rainfall from above. I was so disheartened by the resulting water damage that I immediately secured a fresh copy that wasn't three times the original size with weakened binding and pages ready to fall out. I now own both copies as I wasn't about to get rid of my Penguin Classics edition with the great cover photo by Gérard Castello-Lopes. I don't recall anything about this book except that I feel it's effect on me. I don't know who ever recommended it to me. I forget everything I ever read in it. And I think I'll be re-reading it and forgetting what I read for years to come.
