It starts like this:

Most people start their morning off with a cup of coffee; Jacob Will’s started with a funeral. And it went downhill from there, until it got better. Much better.

His best friend died, by his own hand, but not before leaving instructions on what Jacob needed to do with his life. And if he followed these, nothing would ever be the same. Thank God! Many miles will have been traveled before Jacob comes to understand there is life after death.

Eleven Little Deaths could best be described as Homer’s Odyssey meets Thelma and Louise, minus Louise. Or Jack Kerouac’s On the Road as re-imagined by Carl Hiaasen. Traveling across the country, Jacob realizes his issues are deeper and more plentiful than he thought, compounded and illuminated, sometimes maddeningly so, until he discovers what he’s been missing… a life.
