Why do we choose to suffer voluntarily? Why do we choose family life, a monk’s cell or a blood-drenched battlefield?
These essays on voluntary suffering took Dutch poet and journalist Ruud Linssen more than two years to complete. Linssen herein links personal observations with historical and literary examples.
As this book is also a type specimen of the typeface Fakir, it is set in this blackletter and there is a test CD with the lettertype of the book.
And to stress the suffering: this book is printed in the author’s blood.
