Additional Information

A murdered teen is resurrected to walk the earth for more than a century in the sweeping epic Entertainment Weekly named one of the best books of 2015.

May 7, 1896.

Dusk. A swaggering seventeen-year-old gangster named Zebulon Finch is gunned down by the shores of Lake Michigan. But after mere minutes in the void, he is mysteriously resurrected.

His second life will be nothing like his first.

Zebulon’s new existence begins as a sideshow attraction in a traveling medicine show. From there he will be poked and prodded by a scientist obsessed with mastering the secrets of death. He will fight in the trenches of World War I. He will run from his nightmares—and from poverty—in Depression-era New York City. And he will become the companion of the most beautiful woman in Hollywood.

Love, hate, hope, and horror—Zebulon finds them. But will he ever find redemption?

Ambitious and heartbreaking, The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch, Volume One: At the Edge of Empire is the epic saga of what it means to be human in a world so often lacking in humanity.

The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch is a tremendous expedition of an extraordinary, horrific yet detailed some what addressed as a memoir of how someone could alter their life with a second chance. One could struggle but testing their new strength to get back up on their feet, to take the opportunity to reinvent one's self, and searching the core of redemption. In my opinion, this book was like a freaky science fiction of Forest Gump impacted with an immortal, teenage Oliver Twist, set in a paused life in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. 642 pages; this book took me three days to read, and it also took me a while to get back down to earth, but it is worth reading and I couldn't even put this book down, even if I tried. I felt as if I was Zebulon, narrating the entire journey, gasping at every twisted moments, clutching my chest at the most magnificent collisions, and swimming in a pool of my own tears. I am hell bent to know what happens next!!!
Daniel Kraus tells a fascinating story of a guy fated to eternal life, all the while being dead. And if that doesn't confuse you, nothing will. Quite interesting in its approach, the hero isn't a particularly nice guy, even if he is dead. In his century long travels and travails he encounters some pretty uninteresting characters, each bent on getting something different from him, none of which he can provide. By the end of this long story, I found myself praying that he'd die already! Understand there may be a sequel. Why? Not for me.
An astounding achievement, this epic will make you want to laugh and vomit, possibly at the same time. It is difficult to imagine the imagination that creates such a stupendous work, one that sweeps us through decades of American history as seen through the eyes of a walking and talking corpse. Everything about this novel is unbelievable yet simultaneously convincing and mesmerizing. At 642 pages, it leaves you eager for volume two and wishing volume one had not ended.
