The Life of a Stupid Man collects three stories by Japanese writer Ryūnosuke Akutagawa. The first was the nicest, a short story about a murder told from the perspective of several witness, including – strangely enough – the murder victim. This one I quite liked.
The other two stories were autobiographical and very fragmentary. Those I liked less but it feel wrong to really rate it, it being autobiographical and knowing the author killed himself quite young.
