Reincarnation Blues: A Novel
How would you live each life if you had ten thousand chances? Would you be a snake charmer? A beet-farmer? How about a cricket? Milo could tell you because he’s lived 9,995 different lives. Sometimes he dies young, like when he is tossed across a gorge. Sometimes he dies violently, like the time he’s sentenced to be a human catapult. Sometimes his death is messy, sometimes neat. In between each existence, spiritual advisors greet Milo and give him the opportunity to reflect on his previous incarnation. But now he’s told he only has five more lives and he must reach perfection lest he face eternal oblivion. To make things worse, Milo’s cosmic love, Death (a.k.a. Susie), is also having an existential crisis of her own and is tired of the monotony of escorting the recently dead. With each facing mortality, will Milo and Susie find salvation?
Reminiscent of Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell, and Dave Barry, Michael Poore’s Reincarnation Blues is a uniquely hilarious, thought-provoking look at karma that will have you second-guessing the meaning of life and how you would live if you could do it all over again.
