'Thank God Chuck lives the life he does and writes the way he writes about it. It's not just autobiography; it's a vital form of truth, and he's the real thing.' - Douglas Coupland

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 of any musician can make is to stop breathing . and what that means for the rest of us.
