"Nausea" is a straight forward novle about falling apart.

The man narrating reaches down and wants to pick up a piece of paper but just can't. Some objects seem like enemies. The feeling of anything having a point is not available to him now.

The narrator is a wreck, but the author stays in the world of stating clearly what's going on. The intention of clarity from the author, Jean-Paul Sartre, makes it easier to stay with tne narrator and his suffering.

*The narrator would say he isn't suffering. He would say, that's the way it is, and what do you expect, and who cares?

"Nausea" a count-your-blessings book for people who currently are living in moments that feel connected to each other.
