About this title


Christopher is an odd-job man. He makes a living doing the chores no one else wants to. He doesn't drive and he just may have a crush on the sword-swallower girl who performs down on the boardwalk.
When he agrees to be the test subject for an experimental drug named ReQular, a transdermal patch with unknown effects, things begin to change. Between reporting to the three scientists who lead the research, he becomes wrapped up in the lives of various people- Eddie, a man who lives on the street, Jeanie, a spoiled rich girl, even the sword-swallower, who regards him as a stalker as she draws him close then pushes him away. Most dangerously, he becomes obsessed with destroying the life of a random man he passes on the street, for reasons even he himself can't be sure. 
Through stranger and stranger turns, Christopher gets wrapped up in a world of questions: what is ReQular, who are the mysterious Murphy Group, and who can he trust?
Kissing You is Like Trying to Punch a Ghost is a surreal head-trip of a book, written like a fever-dream that leaves readers with their heads spinning.
