About Book

For 6,557 miles, from New York to Mississippi to Seattle, Chuck Klosterman decided to chase rock n roll and death across a continent. 21 days later, after three relationships, an encounter with various cottonmouth snakes, and a night spent snorting cocaine in a graveyard, Klosterman started to order his thoughts on American culture and the meaning of celebrity.

Uproariously funny, smart and hip, Killing Yourself to Live is a philosophical meditation on life, death, celebrity, rock n roll, why the greatest career move any musician can make is to stop breathing ... and what that means for the rest of us.
