    Four strangers’ lives are turned upside down when death comes for a visit
    At first it seems like an ordinary dream. Talkative Englishman Ian McGann meets a long-dead acquaintance and asks him questions about the afterlife. But when he awakes, a thick pink scar stretches across his chest. Each subsequent night, as he dreams of death, he asks more questions, understands less, and awakens with increasingly gruesome injuries. When he meets an American traveler in Sardinia and tells him of his experience, the stranger begins having matching dreams—with the same painful results. Across the globe, a former TV icon struggles with leukemia, and a movie star falls in love with an HIV-positive photographer. All are flirting with death, and the more they struggle to understand the mysteries of the afterlife, the more they realize the world is not nearly as simple as they once believed. This ebook contains an all-new introduction by Jonathan Carroll, as well as an exclusive illustrated biography of the author including rare images from his personal collection.

Editorial Reviews

  • “A stark, cunning parable about the excruciating fact of our own eventual deaths. . . . fine and harrowing and beautiful.” —The New York Times Book Review “[Carroll is] one of the special ones, one of the few. . . . He opens a window you did not know was there and invites you to look through it. He gives you his eyes to see with, and he gives you the world all fresh and honest and new. . . . He has the magic.” —Neil Gaiman “[A] skillfully crafted, suspenseful narrative.” —Publishers Weekly “Somberly beautiful. . . . The lean prose and formal Viennese settings add to the autumnal atmosphere of this stylish, haunting novel.” —Library Journal
