Book Details

“Okay, I know what you’re thinking, but let’s get one thing straight: No. I’m not a vampire. I mean, yes, I rely on blood to sustain my part-human, semi-immortal lifestyle, but that’s as far as it goes, alright?” For the dead man talking, each death is only a new beginning – as long as someone can be relied upon to donate enough blood to bring him back to life. But it’s hard to fit in when you’re legally dead, and a youth marred by constant reinventions has made relationships and employment seem futile. Unable to gain a foothold in the real world, he begins to question what it means to be human, to be a monster, and to exist. Offering a fresh and frequently hilarious take on immortality, Dead Man Talking is the story of one man’s many lives: from a hedonistic quest to determine whether pleasure alone can bring fulfilment, to a wayward journey of discovery with the self-styled King of the Goths. At the point of giving up, he finally comes to understand the meaning of life – but nothing is without cost, and his genetics will not allow him to escape his fate.
