Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"Christian Franco, the creative and charismatic protagonist of Nelms's debut novel, is like an indefatigable class clown, darkly funny and constantly stirring the pot . . . a relatable modern man and Nelms’ crackling prose moves like lightning." --Publishers Weekly

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Christian Franco knows there’s something wrong with his memory. That’s what happens when your dad murdered your mom, and you spend years bouncing around the foster-care system. Nine years of repressed childhood memories have to come back eventually, right? The problem is, Christian is only able to access old memories when he’s on the verge of consciousness. Alternately thrilled and horrified by his new memories, he turns to ever more drastic measures to leave his fully conscious mind behind. From picking bar fights to injecting experimental drugs, Christian finds that his willingness to kill himself ultimately allows him to fully understand his troubled childhood. Nelms has created a thrill ride in this fast-paced story focused on the conflict between the pain of repression and the pain of knowledge. Fans of the TV show Dexter, the film Memento, and the novels of DBC Pierre will appreciate the brutal honesty of Christian’s narration, spliced with flashbacks to happier times and occasional observations from an omniscient third party. One of the most compelling first novels in recent memory, The Last Time I Died is chilling, cinematic, and unapologetically brash, a heady mixture of all-consuming desire and mortality. --Stephanie Turza
