Product Overview

Wildly original novelist, essayist, and performance artist Jonathan Aames delivers his best collection yet?a hilarious, risqu?, and loveable selection of articles, essays, and fiction, including several previously unpublished pieces.With an HBO pilot based on this collection?s centerpiece (?Bored to Death?), his two hilarious novels, The Extra Man and Wake Up, Sir!, in development as films (with screenplays by Mr. Ames), a critically acclaimed graphic novel, The Alcoholic, under his belt, and an ongoing series of literary and not-so-literary stunts, Jonathan Ames has proven himself to be a writer of diverse and stunning talents.

In The Double Life Is Twice as Good, fans will be treated to a deft and charming compilation of Ames?s journalism, personal essays, and short fiction. Featuring illuminating profiles of Marilyn Manson and Lenny Kravitz, his adventures at a goth festival in the Midwest, a story written for Esquire on a napkin, as well as a comic strip collaboration with graphic artist Nick Bertozzi, Ames?s unique style and personality-driven humor shines throughout this wickedly funny collection. Also included is the aforementioned short story, ?Bored to Death,? a Raymond Chandler?esque tale about a struggling writer-turned-detective who becomes quickly embroiled in the search for a missing college co-ed. Described by The Portland Oregonian as ?an edgier David Sedaris,? it?s no wonder that this comic mastermind?s already fervent and dedicated fanbase is continually growing.
