Non Stop Inertia book cover
Non Stop Inertia
Ivor Southwood - 2011-03-16
Goodreads Rating
Non-Stop Inertia explores the paradox of our fast-paced, hyperconnected culture: why do we always feel like we're moving, but never really getting anywhere? The book argues that instead of being productive or empowering, this constant restlessness actually keeps us trapped in a state of inaction - and that this state is not inevitable, but constructed by society. Using real-life examples and theoretical analysis, the author shows how our obsession with productivity and self-identity is actually holding us back from true growth and progress.
Against Nature book cover
Against Nature
Joris K. Huysmans - 2003-05-01 (first published in 1884)
Goodreads Rating
This classic novel follows Duc Jean des Esseintes as he retreats from his bourgeois life in Paris and reviews the compendium of human experience from an isolated villa. With a focus on intellectual and aesthetic contemplation, he scrutinizes color, food, literature, art, music, philosophy, and religion according to his highly selective tastes. Filled with biting wit and bizarre imagery, Against Nature scandalized Victorian critics with its embrace of fin-de-siècle decadence, but remains a classic account of the quest for new sensations. This edition includes a Preface written by the author 20 years after the book's original 1884 publication.

Adolescence without End
Saito Tamaki - 2013-03-20 (first published in 1998)

This book is the first English translation of a controversial Japanese best-seller that brings attention to the social problem of hikikomori, or “withdrawal”.
