Dear tumblrs, you should read this.  
From the back cover:
"Tortured by the depth of his own intellect, plagued by his overwhelming sense of self-awareness and the moral implications of every action he makes, Antoine, a twenty-five-year-old Aramaic scholar, is at the end of his rope, with only one viable solution in sight; he must denounce his intelligence, by any means necessary.  What follows in Martin Page’s wickedly funny satire is an odyssey unlike any other as Anoine walks the streets of Paris trying everything from alcoholism to stock-trading to the prescription drug Happyzac in order to lighten the burden of his mind on his soul, and to fulfill his dream of becoming stupid enough to be a happily functioning member of society.”
