About the 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.
