Killing Yourself to Live
For 6,557 miles from New York to Mississippi to Seattle, Killing Yourself to Live charts Chuck's journey across America to visit its most famous rock and roll death sites, from the Rhode Island club where over 90 Great White fans died in a fire, to the Iowa field where Buddy Holly's plane crashed, to Seattle and the bridge Kurt Cobain claimed to live under. Twenty-one 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 any musician can make is to stop breathing . . . and what that means for the rest of us.
