“Diary of a Discontent” tells the story of a man who spends his days wandering through the city, spying on his beautiful neighbor, impersonating a college professor, and writing incendiary essays for the local newspaper—all the while dreaming of a pseudonymous existence. Through his diary entries, readers get an intimate glimpse at the workings of his eccentric mind.
