A completely new translation of Osamu Dazai's great masterpiece by award-winning translator Juliet Winters Carpenter. "A journey to hell with Osamu Dazai, Japan's ultimate bad boy novelist" Damian Flanagan, The Japan Times No Longer Human is the story of Yozo Oba, who, from early childhood, finds it impossible to form meaningful relationships with family or friends. As a child he copes by acting the foolmocking himself while entertaining others. As an adult he turns to alcohol, sex and drugs, which lead to his eventual self-destruction. Originally written in 1948 and based closely on Dazai's own life, the timeless and universal themes of social alienation, failure and one man's inner torture at his inability to feel like a normal human still resonate with young people everywhere, making this an enduring international classic. This contemporary translation will be welcomed by all fans of modern Japanese literature as well as by readers familiar with Osamu Dazai. After Soseki Natsume, Osamu Dazai is Japan's most popular writer. Dazai is enjoying a surge in interest among young people today thanks to the success of the manga, anime and film series Bungo Stray Dogs, whose protagonist, a detective named Osamu Dazai, is based on the real-life author. "Dazai's brand of egoistic pessimism dovetails organically with the emo chic of this cultural moment and with the inner lives of teenagers of all eras." Andrew Martin, The New York Times

"Today, such a writer might be castigated, condemned and turned into an instant pariah: Perhaps his books would be taken from bookshops. Yet when Osamu Dazai's short, electrifying novel, "Ningen Shikkaku" (No Longer Human) was published in 1948, it triggered a huge "Dazai Boom."" Damian Flanagan, The Japan Times: "A journey to hell with Osamu Dazai, Japan's ultimate bad boy novelist" "Dazai's brand of egoistic pessimism dovetails organically with the emo chic of this cultural momentand with the inner lives of teenagers of all eras." Andrew Martin, The New York Times The Cult Classic That Captures the Stress of Social Alienation The Japanese novelist Osamu Dazai wrote, better than almost anyone, about the thin line between isolation and belonging." Jane Yong Kim, The Atlantic
