Bored to Death is from the collection The Double Life Is Twice as Good by Jonathan Ames.

Now an HBO original series starring Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore), Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), and Ted Danson, Bored to Death is a Raymond Chandler-esque tale of a struggling Brooklyn writer, curiously named Jonathan Ames, who, in a moment of odd whimsy and boredom, becomes a private detective after spontaneously posting an ad on Craigslist. As a rank amateur who just thinks he can help, this Ames alter ego quickly becomes embroiled in the search for a missing NYU coed. He moves from one scrape to the next, all while trying to escape a life of periodic alcoholism, dead-end relationships, writer’s block, and hours of Internet backgammon.

Bored to Death was originally published in McSweeney’s, issue twenty-four, and is now the centerpiece of Ames’ collection, The Double Life Is Twice as Good.
