Returning to some of the characters first introduced in his award-winning novel The Green-Eyed Queen of Suicide City to tell a unique and all-new tale, Kevin Marc Fournier’s Brief Life is the story of a fraught but lifelong friendship; the chronicle of a small town with a bizarre and tangled history; a multi-generational family saga of ghosts, dreams, visions, and visitations, of strange dogs, secret magic, and mysterious disappearances; a maze of funhouse mirrors, grotesque, poignant, and fantastical.

Praise for Brief Life

Brief Life is at times as haunting as it is relatable, and in it you’ll find the twisted, mis-remembered stories of your own family, real and fake, along with a poignant, nostalgic pull for the magic of youth.”

– Bestselling novelist and screenwriter Susie Moloney
