A History of Loneliness is a haunting and heartfelt account, relaying the strong inner emotions of one’s life. It’s a surreal and beautiful journey through times that feel familiar yet fresh, but is also inexplicably sad in its handling of missed actions and painful reminiscing of realized mistakes.
