Was he redpilled or just a cuck?
There's a translation of Zettels Traum coming out from Dalkey this September. Has anyone here read the original? If so, would you recommend it? Anyone have any thoughts about the translator, John E. Woods?
I'm 38 and Neet, living with my dying mother. Soon I'll have to get a job (wew) and run an old broken down house (no qt) and dealing with bills (you what mate). What are some fictional characters who are in this situation but end up just fine, happy ending type deal.
