“Kirk Farber's quirky debut novel explores themes of love, loss, grief, and what they do to our psyches. Told via the darkly hilarious actions and musings of the hapless Sid as he tries to solve the mystery of a series of postcards from his dead?, missing?...or not, girlfriend. A great read!”
— Chris Grabish, MacDonald Book Shop, Estes Park, CO

Description


Kirk Farber has a style very similar to Chuck Palahniuk, with offbeat observations, a view of our world through a slightly distorted lens, and a tone that's hilarious and tragic at the same time. Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain

A touching, almost cinematic, debut novel featuring the eccentric, slightly disturbed, and unique character Sid, who finds himself among various other darkly comic scenarios obsessed by the mysterious European postcards that arrive in the mail from his ex-girlfriend.

Praise For…


Kirk Farber has a style very similar to Chuck Palahniuk, with offbeat observations, a view of our world through a slightly distorted lens, and a tone that’s quite fun and sometimes hilarious and tragic at the same time. I love the voice and irreverence and humor.
-Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain

Dark. Funny. Bizarre. Mysterious. Fantastic. Kirk Farber’s Postcards from a Dead Girl is a polished gem. Farber’s uniquely quirky protagonist reflects our own personal obsessions, pinning us in limbo while simultaneously prodding us towards adventure.
-Josh Kilmer-Purcell, author of I Am Not Myself These Days

A witty, tormented hero surrounded by fascinating, compassionate supporting characters makes this slender debut a surprisingly compulsive read.
