The Blind Owl

A book I just started reading is available for free here:

While I can’t speak to this particular translation (mine’s different) I can say that after only three pages I am entranced by this slim, bizarre book. From the intro to my version, and some of the notes on the angelfire site, it seems that the book has a controversial past. Apparently readers have killed themselves after finishing its short, anguishing pages. We’ll see if the same fate befalls me.

Stay tuned.

PS: For those looking to read it untranslated, go here.
