Let's see how this goes

No Longer Human, Part 1 - Osamu Dazai

I just requested all three parts of the manga through interlibrary loan. Let's see how this goes. And whether I shock any of our ILL folks. Apparently this may have on-page sex scenes, which would make it more explicit than the original book. I'm somewhat worried about how part 3 will be handled. If there's a point in the series where I have to DNF, I imagine that will be it.

 

ETA: On second thought, I'll cancel the request for part 3 and see how the first two parts handle things. If I can't manage to get through those, I definitely won't be able to manage part 3...
