Diary of an Oxygen Thief is a 2006 Dutch novel, written anonymously and published in Amsterdam by NLVI. Diary of an Oxygen Thief was called a 'surprise dark-horse Williamsburg best seller' by New York Magazine, referring to the independent art, literature, and music scene in Brooklyn, New York.
Purporting to be an autobiography, Diary of an Oxygen Thief begins with the narrator, an Irish advertising executive living in London, describing the pleasure he used to receive from emotionally abusing women. After the narrator starts attending AA meetings, he sobers up and looks back on his past relationships with a measure of remorse. After taking a job in the United States, the narrator is confronted externally by the absurdity of corporate America, culture shock, and the conflict of moving from the lower to upper-middle class. Internally he grapples with paranoia, addiction, and a legacy of pain. Later, he meets a young, aspiring photographer in New York and falls in love with her.
The 'Oxygen Thief' in the title refers to narrator's low self-esteem. Because of his sense of self-loathing he seems to go through life unworthy of the very air he breathes.
Diary of an Oxygen Thief quickly became popular from its initial publication in 2006 to 2016 where it was listed on both Amazon and iTunes 20 top selling books.

Hurt people hurt people. Say there was a novel in which Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic and Lolita was a photographer’s assistant and, somehow, they met in Bright Lights, Big City. He’s blinded by love. She by ambition.
Diary of an Oxygen Thief is an honest, hilarious, and heartrending novel, but above all, a very realistic account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.
Anonymous is the New York Times bestselling author of Diary of an Oxygen Thief.
“Kinky, artsy, and swoon-worthy.” –New York Magazine
“The author does a great job. I loved it!” (Junot Diaz, author of The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao)
“First he steals the oxygen from you, then he spits it right back in your face. One of the most interesting and controversial encounters I’ve made through a book.” (Lorenzo DeRita, editor in chief, COLORS magazine)
“A dark-horse Williamsburg bestseller.” (Jonas Kyle, Spoonbill & Sugartown, Booksellers)
This is an honest, real, account of the legacy of pain, neglect and abuse. What was done to us, what motivates others to harm us, and what we allow them to do. The opening line “I liked hurting girls.” grabbed me and the following pages made my heart pound as I realized that what was done to me in my lifetime was all documented in this diary.
An alcoholic’s account of his misogyny is brutal and hard to take at times but the author makes it easy to read because of his honesty, grace, introspective remorse, all interlaced with humor.
