(From the publisher):
For 6,557 miles, Chuck Klosterman thought about dying. He drove a rental car from New York to Rhode Island to Georgia to Mississippi to Iowa to Minneapolis to Fargo to Seattle, and he chased death and rock 'n' roll all the way. Over the span of twenty-one days, Chuck had three relationships end- one by choice, one by chance, and one by exhaustion. He snorted cocaine in a graveyard. He walked a half-mile through a beanfield. A man in Dickenson, North Dakota, explained to him why we have fewer windmills than we used to. Chuck listend to the KISS solo albums and the Rod Stewart boxset. At one point, poisonous snakes became involved. The road is hard. From the Chelsea Hotel to the swampland where Lynard Skynard's plane went down to the site where Kurt Cobain blew his head off, Chuck explored every brand of rock star demise. He wanted to know why the greatest career move any musician can make is to stop breathing... and what this means for the rest of us.
