No Longer Human (人間失格, Ningen Shikkaku) is a Japanese novel by Osamu Dazai. It is considered Dazai's masterpiece and ranks as the second-best-selling novel in Japan,

No Longer Human by Osamu Dazai is deep, painful, real and so very human. This book, which was first published in 1948, is a raw portrayal of human thinking, feelings, and emotions. It specifically captures the isolated, troubled, disturbed, and confused thought process of a young man named Yozo. 


This well-written book though depressing and pessimistic is, in a way, required reading for everyone, as it is important for each one of us to understand and feel what a fellow human being is going through when they are feeling depressed, lonely, and emotionally low. No Longer Human is for all humans who have a heart that feels, and are compassionate and empathetic.
