No Longer Human [book]

 No Longer Human [book]

BASIC SUMMARY OF THE BOOK IS KID WHO CAN'T UNDERSTAND OR LIKE HOW OTHER PEOPLE ACT SPENDING THEIR CHILDHOOD BEING A GOOFBALL CLASS CLOWN TO COVER IT UP THEN GROWS IN AN EXTREMELY SOCIALLY AWKWARD ADULT WHO IS KINDA A BAD PERSON AND HAS A BUNCH OF PROBLEMS WITH ALCOHOL THEN DRUGS THEN THE BOOK ENDS AFTER NOT REALLY GOING ANYWHERE. 

THE BOOK  HOWEVER BECAME VERY FAMOUS BECAUSE THE AUTHOR DIED WEEKS AFTER IT WAS PUBLISHED AND IT TURNED OUT THE BOOK WAS EXTREMELY BUT NOT PERFECTLY AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL. INCLUDING A PART HE KINDA SORTA KILLED SOMEONE AND CONFESSIONS HE WAS MOLESTED AS A CHILD. MAKING THE WHOLE THINK INFINITELY MORE BLEAK. ALSO IT CAME OUT IN 1958 AND WAS TOP OF THE BEST SELLING BOOK LIST FOR AGES SO IT'S GOT LIKE, THAT SORT OF WEIRD CULTURAL DISTANCE BY NOW SO IT JUST GETS ADAPTED INTO WEIRD THINGS NOW LIKE JUNJI ITO MAKING A HORROR COMIC OUT OF IT? WHICH IS THE SOURCE OF ME KNOWING THIS BOOK EXISTS. 

PS. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HOW AGRO THE BOOK INTRODUCTION IS ABOUT WESTERN STUFF BEING IN A JAPANESE STORY. IT'S LIKE YOU OPEN THE BOOK AND THE INTRO WRITER IS JUST JUST SO ANGRY AT YOU FOR THINKING HE MENTIONS A LOT OF WESTERN STUFF AND IF THIS BOOK WAS FROM FRANCE YOU WOULDN'T THINK IT WAS WEIRD IF THEY MENTIONED AN AMERICAN MOVIE STAR AND IT JUST COMES OFF AS SUCH A WEIRD INTRO, IT FEELS SO SPECIFICALLY ANGRY AT YOU FOR THINKING IT,  BUT IT'S THE INTRODUCTION TO THE BOOK. SO YOU HADN'T THOUGHT IT YET. IT'S SO TANGENTAL TO ANYTHING ABOUT THE STORY TOO. IT'S REALLY WEIRD!
