Postcards from a Dead Girl

Kirk Farber has written a really interesting story, in "Postcards from a Dead Girl". Sid works at a cold call center, selling vacations. He has some serious issues. His girlfriend Zoe disappeared a year ago, but she has been sending him postcards from all over the world. His Mothers ghost lives in a bottle of '67 Bordeaux, and she whines to him on a regular basis. Oh yeah, he might have a brain tumor.

Poor Sid, he is one hot mess! This book is both funny and sad. As Sid juggles his awful job with his search for Zoe, he is barely holding it together. While he gets closer to the truth, as well as a diagnosis, Sid seems to discover more about the people around him, and about himself.

I think Farber gave up a little too much, too soon, but I really enjoyed the storyline and the writing.

I received this book from Harper Perennial. Thank you!
