Description
Adam Strand isn t depressed. He's just bored. Disaffected. So he kills himself 39 times. No matter the method, Adam can t seem to stay dead; he awakes after each suicide alive and physically unharmed, more determined to succeed and undeterred by others concerns. But when his self-contained, self-absorbed path is diverted, Adam is struck by the reality that life is an ever-expanding web of impact and forged connections, and that nothing not even death can sever those bonds.
