The Book of Disquiet
  • Play
  • Partially autobiographical play written by Fernando Pessoa.

    "Listed as one of The Guardian's top 100 books of all time, Fernando Pessoa's Book of Disquiet was discovered in a trunk in his apartment in Lisbon after his death in 1935. Part novel, part memoir, part philosophical meditation on the futility of living, Pessoa's Livro defies definition and endures as a testament to modernist writing."

    Why do I feel strangely drawn to the kind of people I'd usually run a mile from? Religious fundamentalists, for example. At least those guys make an effort. They yearn for what they really don't know. The rest of us cross the stage as walk-ons, extras, without any lines.
