Here Goes Nothing

Here Goes Nothing

"Steve Toltz writes a novel about every seven years, and it's always an event for me.  His first book, A Fraction of the Whole, is still one of my all time favorites, and this new one is right up there.  I just love the way his acerbic mind works.  The way his characters view the world is just so messed up it's hilarious. He's the only author, maybe with the exception of Nick Harkaway,  that consistently makes me laugh out loud when I'm reading them.  There isn't anyone who can write a better rant than this guy."

A wildly inventive, savagely funny and topical novel about love, mortality and the afterlife, by the Booker-shortlisted author of A Fraction of the Whole.

Angus is a reformed ne'er-do-well looking forward to the birth of his first child when he's murdered by a man who is in love with his pregnant wife Gracie. Having never believed in God, heaven or hell, Angus finds himself in the afterlife - a place that provides more questions than answers. As a worldwide pandemic finally reaches the shores of Australia, the afterlife starts to get very crowded and Angus finds a way to reconnect with his wife Gracie and maybe even seek revenge on his murderer...
 
Here Goes Nothing is a novel of exhilarating originality and scope about birth, death and everything in between and after by ‘a writer of prodigious talent’ (Peter Carey) that contains a vision of the afterlife that rivals Dante’s Divine Comedy and George Saunders' Lincoln in the Bardo, and the emmy-nominated The Good Place.
