It´s Lonely in the Modern World:The Essential Guide to Form Function and Ennui from the Creators of Unhappy Hipsters Molly Jane Quinn
Des Esseintes is a decadent, ailing aristocrat who retreats to an isolated villa where her indulges his taste for luxury and excess. Veering between nervous excitability and debilitating ennui, he gluts his aesthetic appetites with classical literature and art, exotic jewels (with which he fatally encrusts the shell of his tortoise).
The portrait of a New Orleans stockbroker, Binx Bolling, turning thirty and caught between ennui and a need for redemption through women, family or personal revelation, ´The Moviegoer´ won the National Book Award in the USA on its first publication in 1961.
