The themes of this book resonated with me: the inescapable, central malevolence of the human experience, and a tragically idealistic narrator who tries to defy this truth, forsaking her own sanity to do so. Do you know of any other books which deal with similar ideas, such as the human capacity for violence, the descent into madness, the fight against a damaging patriarchy, disintegrating families, & erotic obsession?

Paakhi Veronika Decides to Die by Paulo Coelho probably checks all those boxes. I'd definitely give it a read!
