The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa

This fictional diary and journal by the Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa is one of Nobel Prize-winning Jose Saramago’s and Patti Smith’s favorite books. I see why. The dazzling prose, poetry, intelligence, and intimate vignettes by the author or his brilliant, reclusive alternative ego’s inner and external experiences is an incredible read.

I recommend reading this book the same as I suggest reading Proust, i.e., the writing is so rich that it’s best to read no more than six or seven pages a day.
