about

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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic and fabulous! I hereby announce this book, The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch by Daniel Kraus, to be my best read of the year. If you took Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury and Interview With A Vampire by Anne Rice and put them in a mixing bowl with a dash of H. P. Lovecraft, a pinch of Stephen King and healthy tablespoon of Saving Private Ryan, you might cook up something like The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch. Zebulon is quite the anti-hero and Daniel Kraus infuses this dead 17 year old boy with more life than most of us will see in our lifetimes. The character development is stunning. The language and vocabulary used are a celebration. This book is epic - so read it - go - read it now!
