Rob Garland is getting married in two months. Oddly, however, this is the least of his problems. More vexing than the seating arrangements, the choice of wedding stationery - more than the savagely obscene expense of everything - is the fact that Rob should be dead - and he knows it.

Faced with an ultimatum from his girlfriend to either sort himself out, or call the wedding (and the whole relationship) off, he sets about trying to come to terms with how it is that, somehow, he's still inexplicably breathing. After pouring his heart out to the listeners on his late-night radio jazz show, he soon finds himself teamed up with others who really ought not to be alive, but who - for random, meaningless and, frankly, stupid reasons - unaccountably are.

And that's when things become yet more worrying. Because it turns out that their search to understand why they've each remained oddly alive might very well end up killing them all.

Love, death, religious beliefs, existential angst - Love and Other Near-Death Experiences is a jack-knifing comedy about those things which should be no laughing matter.

    Comments about Love and Other Near Death Experiences:

    An easy read, witty, engaging and (in places) deeply insightful. Part love story, part mystery, and a large part hilarity, this is a great buy or borrow for any one who enjoys a quirky story.
