Saint Manuel Bueno Martir by Miguel de Unamuno.
A bit religious, but may like you. Is very short (no more than 150 pages) and the main characters are the narrator (a girl) her brother (who is a communist that have travelled to USA) and the priest of the town (Manuel Bueno, who is claimed to be a saint by the people in his town). In their conversations they explore the meaning of human life and the existance of god itself.

Read The Grand Inquistor chapter from The Brothers Karamazov.

Read the 2 preceding chapters as a primer. I don't think you'd need context and it doesn't spoil the story.

What about the book I wrote? THE BEGINNING OF THE END by Ian Parkinson. A couple of dollars on Kindle. Am I allowed to say this? Or is it a cunt's thing to do?

>> No.13126018

yes, read Albert Camus's THE STRANGER. It's awesome and about a man who doesn't believe in anything.
