Zeno's Conscience by Italo Svevo

"Zeno's Conscience" is a novel that delves into the complex mind of Zeno Cosini, a neurotic Italian businessman, through his confessional memoirs, which he writes at the behest of his psychiatrist. The narrative humorously and poignantly explores Zeno's struggles with his father's death, his unfulfilled love affairs, his troubled marriage, and his addiction to cigarettes. The book, rich in irony and psychological depth, offers a sharp critique of early 20th-century bourgeois society, revealing the protagonist's introspective and often flawed interpretations of his own life and the world around him.
