Summary
The Book of Disquiet is one of the great literary works of the twentieth century. Written over the course of Fernando Pessoa's entire writing life and originally published nearly half a century after his death in 1935, this fragmentary modernist masterpiece appears now in this luxury hardback edition in order of original composition and with substantial new material that has never appeared in any previous English edition. Narrated principally by an assistant bookkeeper named Bernardo Soares - an alias of sorts for Pessoa himself - The Book of Disquiet is Pessoa's 'factless autobiography', a mosaic of dreams, of hope and despair, of exquisite melancholy observations, aphorisms and ruminations. This new edition represents the most complete vision of Pessoa's genius

Summary
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.
