9780743264457: Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story

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. Within 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 halfmile through a bean field. A man in Dickinson, North Dakota, explained to him why we have fewer windmills than we used to. He listened to the KISS solo albums and the Rod Stewart box set.

At one point, poisonous snakes became involved. The road is hard. From the Chelsea Hotel to the swampland where Lynyrd Skynyrd'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.

From AudioFile:

As a writer for SPIN and ESQUIRE, Chuck Klosterman focuses on the subject of rock 'n' roll and pop culture. His recent 6,557- mile adventure in a Ford Taurus, checking out the places where rock stars died, is perfectly yet drolly summarized in this audio. Klosterman's story brings the listener from a graveyard, where he snorts cocaine, to the site of the Lynyrd Skynyrd plane crash to the place where Kurt Cobain committed suicide, all the while humorously commenting on his great love for the three women in his life. In a voice and style that are appropriately hip, Patrick Lawlor flawlessly captures the sarcastic tone and dry humor found in this wild adventure.
