Rightstuf dives into 'A Shameful Life', the new translation of Osamu Dazai's Ningen shikkaku
Thanks to Quinn at Rightstuf Anime for reviewing A Shameful Life, Mark Gibeau's new translation of the classic by Osamu Dazai. As a recurring character in the anime Bungo Stray Dogs, learn more about who this mysterious character is by reading his last and most famous work.
"For those familiar with the anime Bungo Stray Dogs, you’re most likely aware that the majority of the main cast of characters are all based on famous real-life authors. Among them is Osamu Dazai. In the show, the character of Dazai is best known for his easy-go-lucky attitude, his penchant for trying to commit suicide, and his failure to do so. Dazai’s depiction is one of the reasons I was interested in reading A Shameful Life, which was written by the real-life Osamu Dazai, and, sadly, mirrors his own life. After reading the book from cover to cover I can’t help but pity the man who penned its words."
