The Book of Disquiet

Fernando Pessoa
Lisbon is the white city by the sea where dreams and longings meet. No one could better gauge that melancholy and loneliness than Fernando Pessoa. Behind ever new masks, he slips through the narrow streets to catch a new scene of the small world theater with every look.

Pascal Mercier
Raimund Gregorius suddenly leaves his well-ordered life behind and takes the night train to Lisbon. In his luggage: the book of the Portuguese Amadeu de Prado, whose insights into the experience of human life no longer let him go. A restless search for another life and the search for an unusual doctor and poet who has fought against the dictatorship of Salazar starts.
