Amsterdam Storiesby Nescio, Joseph O'Neill (Introduction), Damion Searls (Translator)
No one has written more feelingly and more beautifully than Nescio about the madness and sadness, courage and vulnerability of youth: its big plans and vague longings, not to mention the binges, crashes, and marathon walks and talks. No one, for that matter, has written with such pristine clarity about the radiating canals of Amsterdam and the cloud-swept

"Do. As if I haven't had enough pointless doing. oh they have nothing else, they only are when they do. I want to be, and for me to do is: not to be." This book blew me away. The painful, idealistic, artistic, wonderful struggles of the young set in the beautiful surroundings of Amsterdam kept me riveted and reading very slowly so as not to miss anything. If the quote from the book above makes no sense to you....don't try to read this book. If the quote makes you smile and remember your own youth ( or your own current state of being) grab this book now.
