Confessions of a mask. Either Mishima is a lousy, purple bastard or his Japanese-to-English translators are. I got 1/3 way through Temple of the Golden Pavilion before I returned it prematurely.
I read it at your age, it was halfway decent then. Read The Fall (same author) after, it's his best work. The Stranger doesn't compare.

I got you senpai
You desire to LIVE "according to Nature"? Oh, you noble Stoics, what fraud of words! Imagine to yourselves a being like Nature, boundlessly extravagant, boundlessly indifferent, without purpose or consideration, without pity or justice, at once fruitful and barren and uncertain: imagine to yourselves INDIFFERENCE as a power--how COULD you live in accordance with such indifference? To live--is not that just endeavoring to be otherwise than this Nature? Is not living valuing, preferring, being unjust, being limited, endeavouring to be different? And granted that your imperative, "living according to Nature," means actually the same as "living according to life"--how could you do DIFFERENTLY? Why should you make a principle out of what you yourselves are, and must be? In reality, however, it is quite otherwise with you: while you pretend to read with rapture the canon of your law in Nature, you want something quite the contrary, you extraordinary stage-players and self-deluders! In your pride you wish to dictate your morals and ideals to Nature, to Nature herself, and to incorporate them therein; you insist that it shall be Nature "according to the Stoa," and would like everything to be made after your own image, as a vast, eternal glorification and generalism of Stoicism! With all your love for truth, you have forced yourselves so long, so persistently, and with such hypnotic rigidity to see Nature FALSELY, that is to say, Stoically, that you are no longer able to see it otherwise-- and to crown all, some unfathomable superciliousness gives you the Bedlamite hope that BECAUSE you are able to tyrannize over yourselves--Stoicism is self-tyranny--Nature will also allow herself to be tyrannized over: is not the Stoic a PART of Nature? . . . But this is an old and everlasting story: what happened in old times with the Stoics still happens today, as soon as ever a philosophy begins to believe in itself. It always creates the world in its own image; it cannot do otherwise; philosophy is this tyrannical impulse itself, the most spiritual Will to Power, the will to "creation of the world," the will to the causa prima.

Yeah, pretty good. I liked to implement some of the formal systems when I was reading it.
How are you liking my boy McCarthy?
I find Die Stadt der Träumenden Bücher extremely enjoyable, but not very insightful. How is Houellebecq? I only read Submission and a bit of Elementary Particles, but quite liked it.
Do you think that his idea of the decrease in the ration of producers of art to consumers can still hold up, in the age where so many people produce information on the internet?
Hidd el, átok! Pedig annyi mindent el lehet érni a földön féregkén kúszva, annyi előny és ajándék, de képtelen vagyok rá hogy olyasmit műveljek amiben nem hiszek legalább egy kicsit is.
