About the Author

Award-winning journalist and author Brian Krans lives and works in the Midwest. A Constant Suicide is his first novel. Like his characters, Krans' experience at college was filled with many hours in party houses and even longer hours catching up in the library afterward. It was the hectic lifestyle of a student-partier and other forces that sent Krans into a state of depression that ended in a suicide attempt his junior year, only to be rescued by his roommate and cousin. In November 2006, in conjunction with the Q-C November Novelists, Krans expanded a short story he wrote at Winona State University into A Constant Suicide. Between a full-time job as a newspaper reporter, a weekend job as a bartender and volunteering with teenage kids, Krans wrote this part-fiction, part-memoir of his college experience. He is twenty-five years old.

A Constant Suicide should be required reading for incoming college freshmen. Brian Kran's debut novel is brutally honest about the struggle for identity and the tragic consequences sometimes associated with it. I'd recommend this book to those college-bound and to those who'd like to reminisce about a period of life full of endless possibility.

I did not know what to expect when I began this novel. However, Brian Krans' first novel, A Constant Suicide, is well written and developed. It sucked me in right away. The story jumps around from present to past to excerpts from a journal entry and back to the present. The characters were easy to identify with. We all can look back to college years and remember the pressures and stigmas and cliches. Everyone will get something different out of this book. Sometimes the people you are closest to are the farthest away.

I got this book off a list from Yahoo answers of 'books that are like fight club' - thought I'd give this one a try.

I found that it started with the philosophy of the antagonist being pushed into every other character however I found the last 3 quarters of the book very good.

I really enjoyed this book. I read it in two sittings and could not stop reading. The characters are like real people I have met and the story definitely helped me cope with the realities of death. WORTH THE BUY!
