From the Publisher:
A man who feels no pain and has no recollection of why, finds himself a minor celebrity for doing bar tricks in New York City, and is hounded by people who want to use him to get rich. Original. 20,000 first printing.
In this zealous debut novel, Sean Ferrell mixes masochism and existentialism to tell the story of an amnesiac who reluctantly parlays his bizarre inability to feel pain into low-grade celebrity. Dubbed "Numb" by his fellow freaks in the Texas circus, the protagonist has no memory of who he is or why he is immune to pain. He travels to New York City in pursuit of his past and discovers that he can earn a decent living by charging people to pound nails into him and otherwise abuse his flesh. But when others exploit his excruciating hobby for their own selfish benefit, Numb begins to question his identity and his purpose.
