"Japanese author's incomplete masterpiece explores the comical predicament of an editor with too many lovers who want to break up. In this collection, readers can enjoy a diverse range of Dazai Osamu's writing, including his painfully honest confessions about his lonely youth, battles with addiction, and failed suicide attempts. The book also features humorous observations of everyday life, surprising twists on Western traditions, and a cautionary tale about never trusting dogs."
