Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
From the coauthor of the New York Times bestselling The Shape of Water comes the "utterly riveting" ( Entertainment Weekly ) tale of a murdered teen who is resurrected to walk the earth for more than a century.<br> <br> May 7, 1896.<br> <br> Dusk. A swaggering seventeen-year-old gangster named Zebulon Finch is gunned down by the shores of Lake Michigan. But after mere minutes in the void, he is mysteriously resurrected.<br> <br> His second life will be nothing like his first.<br> <br> Zebulon's new existence begins as a sideshow attraction in a traveling medicine show. From there he will be poked and prodded by a scientist obsessed with mastering the secrets of death. He will fight in the trenches of World War I. He will run from his nightmares--and from poverty--in Depression-era New York City. And he will become the companion of the most beautiful woman in Hollywood.<br> <br> Love, hate, hope, and horror--Zebulon finds them. But will he ever find redemption?<br> <br> "Fearlessly weaving gore, love, philosophy, and social justice issues into one sharp whole" ( BCCB ), The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch, Volume One: At the Edge of Empire is the epic saga of what it means to be human in a world so often lacking in humanity.
Ages 14 up.
