Are you ready for what comes next?

Accustomed to a life of cosseted seclusion at home with his parents, Valentine is suddenly faced with making his own way in the world. His new life is quickly upended, however, when he's mugged at gunpoint. Finding shelter at a mysterious inn run by the dour Mrs. Anna, he soon encounters a Bosnian woman with a hole where her stomach used to be, an American entrepreneur with a scheme to implant televisions into people's foreheads, and a Catholic priest who attempts to lure him down inside a kitchen sink. Then things start getting strange....

In this story based loosely around the state of Bardo from The Tibetan Book of the Dead - an intermediate state where the dead arrive prior to rebirth - dying is the easy part. Getting out of Bardo and returning to the land of the living is a far more perilous proposition, and unless you know what you're doing...you might never leave.

An odd, yet oddly touching tale of life, death, and the space in-between.

    " Under 100 pages. It was a crazy confusing book but I am sooooo glad I pushed to the end!! "

    " Strange yet amusing read; some surprising twists and turns! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Khrystine | 1/9/2014

    " This is kind of a bizarre little novel, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's kind of hard to tell what's going on (though I had my suspicions), but it is not unpleasant. It's a fun quick read, and very well written. "

    " Great short book about life and death. The characters are absurd but entertaining. "

    " This was an interesting read and leaves you with the thought that not all is what it seems. Valentine has to fend for himself and things strange and weird start to happen. I don't want to say too much, but I like the book for the weird and funny and some times the philosophical reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nigel Watts | 11/6/2012

    " Quite a short book but worth the time to read. There is a lot of hunour so long as you understand the context within which the book is written. the ending iss slightly twee but it doesnt take long to read so isnt so disapointing as if you have to struggle through the prose to get there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lora-lee Blalock | 10/29/2012

    " Interesting story, quick read, a few fine philosophical moments, but I felt it tried a little too hard to be clever and funny and didn't always succeed. "

    " Worst book ever. Do not waste your $$ or time! "
