A Life on Fire is the debut novella written by Chris Bowsman distributed via Grindhouse Press Going into the book I wasn’t sure what to expect All I knew is the cover looked badass and fiery thanks to Brandon Duncan It turns out what lies inside is even better The main character Gerald McManner is a patent clerk but rarely approves anything because his clients are dimwits who try reinvent every invention known to man To make things worse his home life isn’t any better We find out his life has grown boring and monotonous ever since his wife died Gerald freuently drinks and passes out in a drunken stupor What happens next shakes the very foundations of Gerald’s world He begins to slip into a horrifying reality at any given time that slightly resembles our own but is occupied by what seem to be the living and the dead Overtime what seems to be another form of his wife visits him and guides him through the hallucinatory terrain The great thing is you’re not sure if all of these visions are merely illusions fueled by an alcoholic’s madness or if this other world truly exists Bowsman’s prose is simple yet direct He knows just how to describe the protagonist’s pain and it resonates through every page A Life on Fire is a surreal yet emotionally poignant novella about a man trying to put his life back together but finds out the fire may be too large to put out

Chris Bowsman Í A Life On Fire text

Gerald McManner does not have a happy life His job is boring and he goes home to an empty house Ever I'm looking back on some recent book ratings and most of my 5 stars probably deserve 4 stars Except for this book I wish it had been longer I wish there had been scenes told from the wife's point of view I am extremely happy that the ending was not predictable and the protagonist was so relatable This is a simple story told with heart than most bizarro fiction I'm barely comfortable sticking it in the genre for reasons I am afraid to even touch upon from fear of mentioing spoilers I hope Bowsman has other published works since for a first novelnovella this was amazing The entire bit is one massive bundle of depression and darkness without being overly gruesome The main character is an emotional wreck and reading about such people often times makes me grateful for what I have Great title and cover as well

book ´ A Life On Fire Í Chris Bowsman

A Life On Fire Y day is pretty much the same until one day when his dreams become nightmares and the boredom become Bizarre indeed a tale that has some strange creatures with crocodile like heads and a strange body with tentacles that do ungodly acts with a woman Definitely one for the adult reader with explicit content and language the main protagonist Hates his job constantly gets drunk and clings onto ashes in a urn and memories of a dead loved one He seems to be going through a bunch of crazy nightmarish experiences It was a fun read but had something missing for me
