The Deaths of Henry King - Brian Evenson

Staff Pick

The premise is simple: Henry King dies. However, what makes this book interesting is that it is a cross between the cult movie Final Destination and the Oulipian masterpiece, Exercises in Style, by Raymond Queneau. In the book, Ball and Evenson presents dozens of scenarios describing Henry King dying in various ways: being buried alive, falling from a building, being beheaded, and overdosing from Viagra. The pair writes with a mix of humor and poignancy that elevates what at first seems as a joke premise which results in a book that explores the many ways we die and, by consequence, also the many ways that we live.
