"The protagonist of Ron Currie, Jr.'s new novel has a problem--or rather, several of them. He's a writer whose latest book was destroyed in a fire. He's mourning the death of his father, and has been in love with the same woman since grade school, a woman whose beauty and allure is matched only by her talent for eluding him. Worst of all, he's not even his own man, but rather an amalgam of fact and fiction from Ron Currie's own life. When Currie the character exiles himself to a small Caribbean island to write a new book about the woman he loves, he eventually decides to fake his death, which turns out to be the best career move he's ever made. But fame and fortune come with a price, and Currie learns that in a time of twenty-four-hour news cycles, reality TV, and celebrity Twitter feeds, the one thing the world will not forgive is having been told a deeply satisfying lie."--Provided by publisher.

Sorry...maybe it was my current frame of mind but I couldn't even get half way through this book. My stomach simply could not handle listening to this stereotypical, narcissistic and masochistic, boring self indulgent ravings of a "broken hearted angst ridden alcoholic lady killer and trouble maker" who lives on a tropical island.

Curry explains why he faked his own suicide and what happened when he did. It's a story of dysfunctional and broken people, and consequences both intended and otherwise.
