How are people not mind boggled by this like this is what I sit and think about at 4 AM.
Every time I see this book in the bookstore, I go to the back to read about the author to see if any of them were updated with his recent death. None of them were. He made his struggle into art. His struggle is literally tangible when it’s written within a book. When you’re holding this book, you’re holding his thoughts, his troubles. It made me sad to think that someone else would read this book while going through their own miseries only to find out he committed suicide seven years later. It made me think that the struggle never really ends.
