>The protagonist (Harel), known only as "Our Hero" during the entirety of the story, lives a solitary life, and has not had sex for over two years
>He is teamed up with a disturbing, unattractive, desperate 28-year-old virgin
how wizardly, without knowing much more, I am not interested, sorry op
My twisted world.
It's still worth reading. Tisserand is a crab character, but Notre Heros has some wizardly elements despite not being a virgin. Overall, Whatever (horrible translation of the French title) is a fitting reflection on modernity and the hyper-sexualization of society. Considering it was written in 1994, it predicted the social trends of the next 25 years with a good degree of accuracy.
Seconding this, Chekhov was an amazing writer and that story was one of his best ones.
Best writing I have ever read. I've listened to it multiple times on audiobook read by a text to speech robot
it's 2019 don't forget
these might not be exactly what you’re looking for but:>the underground man>no longer human>Nausea (Sartre)
Literally anything written by Ligotti.
Argarizim - Johannes nefastos
Entering the desert - Craig williams
Lucifer princeps - Peter Grey
heights of despair, I learned about the book back in wizardchan, nothing comes close to its madness.
I like Houellebecq, i've already read Soumission and his essay on Lovecraft
I found his considerations on Lovecraft's worldview to be also very interesting in this matter
I think i'll read EDDDLL soon>>210672
That's another one who's on my reading list
Redundant, derivative, and unsubstantial.
Cioran is amazing indeed.
Fritz Zorn - Mars
The conspiracy of the human race - Ligotti
