A satirical novel, ingenious and hilarious, that knows how to make fun of life and death.
Sullivan lives in a shack, for most of his life he hasn’t done anything special: then he started to die and hasn’t stopped since. We are in the southern United States and the small town is overwhelmed by the Sullivan phenomenon, a man who dies all the time: because of accidents, because of a shooting, killing himself. Sullivan’s corpses fill the town morgue and Sheriff Smid, who loves swimming, hot dogs and solacing himself, is forced despite himself to deal with the affair. A chain of bizarre, paranormal, mystical events upsets the small community. The Sullivan cult is born with a sect in tow, journalists invade the village and the FBI tries to understand the faults and crimes. A novel that plays with American fiction and TV series: witty, sarcastic and unmissable.
