Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story is a work of non-fiction written by Chuck Klosterman, first published by Scribner in 2005. The title is a reference to the 1973 song "Killing Yourself To Live", by the heavy metal band Black Sabbath. It is Klosterman's third book and focuses on the premise of writing about the relationship between love and death, particularly deaths involving music celebrities.
For 6,557 miles, Chuck Klosterman thought about dying. He drove a rental car from New York to Rhode Island to Georgia to Mississippi to Iowa to Minneapolis to Fargo to Seattle, and he chased death and rock ‘n’ roll all the way. Within the span of twenty-one days, Chuck had three relationships end-one by choice, one by chance, and one by exhaustion. He snorted cocaine in a graveyard. He walked a half-mile through a bean field
Killing Yourself to Live book. a funny and interesting guy. Finishing Killing Yourself to Live, I can only report that this book felt forced and pointless, and even if Klosterman went on to write the next big thing, I don't know if I feel like giving him another chance. Maybe in another ten years.
Chuck Klosterman is an acquired taste. If you are interested in anything Chuck Klosterman has to say, then this book is right up your alley. He talks about the two things he knows about most- music and himself.
Chuck Klosterman is the kind of guy who calls Rod Stewart "the single-greatest male singing voice of the rock era" and really means it. To people who think he's just being ironic, Klosterman asks, "Why would I want people to think that I like someone I do not actually like? What possible purpose would that serve?" It may be too much to say that Klosterman is on a mission to save rock 'n' roll from irony, but the Spin critic clearly favors sincerity.
