Hello /lit/, please help me with this thought experiment:
A guardian angel has been assigned to you from heaven,
she won't tell you why she's there but she's there to remind you something every 5 minutes. Every fifth minute the angel will tap your shoulder and won't say anything, and she will do this until you die.
What do you do given this "opportunity"?
What would you remind yourself every fifth minute?
Can /lit/ recommend me some more books like this? With a cynical and misanthropic main character who you can sorta sympathize with?
Write about your sadness.
It doesn't have an object to blame for.
It doesn't have a desire to strife for.
It's not a lover, nor a god.
Will stay with me
in days to come.

Which psychology/philosophy book will help me best understand why I drink gallons of caffeinated drinks and masturbate for 6-9 hours a day even though i'd rather do something else and it's destroying me mentally and physically
What does /lit/ think of Franzen? Is he the bastion of New Sincerity?
I loved the corrections. It was a social realist novel (honestly, reminded me of Austen and Eliot more anyone else) with enough postmodern fireworks to make it interesting and challenging. Better than IJ in my opinion
How does /lit/ feel about Eragon?
Become enlightened! Read the beautiful words of the incredible writer Oscar Wilde. Slavoj Zizek talks a lot about this essay, and it is indeed fascinating. Thoughts? :
