You don’t get the kind of praise many of my Goodreads friends heaped upon his work by being a bad writer. This book isn’t bad. Fernando Pessoa se ensimisma profundamente en la vida, en su vida y a veces nos parece que no somos capaces de alcanzar a vislumbrar, aunque sea de lejos, las profundidades del pozo en el que discurre su existencia.

He loved and loathed himself equally. It comes recommended to those looking to expand their knowledge of this period of literary history, as well as fans of modern bizarro and gonzo fiction.
