Why do we choose to suffer voluntarily? Why do we choose family life, a monk's cell or a blood-drenched battlefield? These essays on voluntary suffering took Dutch poet and journalist Ruud Linssen more than 2 years to complete. Linssen herein links personal observations with historical and literary examples.

As this book is also a type specimen of the typeface Fakir, it is set in this blackletter. And to stress the suffering: this book is printed in the author's blood.
