A Guide for Destruction

“The most meaningful action to be taken in the face of the meaninglessness of life was to destruct it...”

I climbed up on that roof because I wanted to die. I climbed up there because the most meaningful action to be taken in the face of the meaninglessness of life was to destruct it.

A single step I would take would be enough. A single step taken into the emptiness. Even the tiny step of a child would end this ordeal. It was even enough for me to have been never made of no father and born of no mother, to have never breathed and to have never grown. A single step into the air... It will embrace the ground delayed... Perhaps it will take three or four seconds... but it will inevitably reach the ground. I won’t have a mind left for any thoughts to bother...

The world would die, everything I knew would die.”

A young man who cannot accept to continue his life by calling it quits on ‘anyhows’... He is a hero who doesn’t let any emotion get through unless it’s absolutely ‘genuine’.

This is a startling novel in which every line is woven with a severe struggle against existence.
