In this romantic comedy horror, a girl who believes she has psychic abilities decides to bring her dead boyfriend back from the dead - with surprising and funny results.

Her boss, for one, thinks she's having a breakdown. And, if anyone needs life support, it is her.
The writer lays down layers like a work by Murakami then peels them back to reveal what is at the core.
Or....Think Chuck Palahniuk, Kurt Vonnegut and Franz Kafka getting together to write a comedy...And you are ready for How To Bring A Boyfriend Back From The Dead!

Faith and Magic: what we believe in and what we have become. If life is an illusion, then anything is possible.
A unique romance, surreal entertainment that laughs in the face of Death while putting the way society deals with sanity under the microscope.

    This would make a great movie! It is a surpriising and entertai


    This would make a great movie! It is a surpriising and entertaining dark comedy with some unusual inspiration and characters and has "cult novel" status about it. A girl who thinks she is a psychic - she may be mad, you have to decide - tries to bring her boyfriend back from the dead (like the title says). It is an unusual place to find comedy - like the phrase "laughing in the face of death" - but this writer just pulls it off with a very clever ending. Serious issues, like how people change in relationships and how a feeling of loss after the death of a loved one could make you spin off the rails, are blended in with a good old fashion Good versus Evil story. Memorable characters, like world weary cynic Portia Maxwell who runs the Psychic Deli, and Ramana Queen of Evil who is the Cruella D' Ville of this story, keep the pace interesting and twine their own personal stories around the main event of Aurora - the psychic or crazy girl - and her boyfriend. I enjoyed this on a long train journey. Highly recommended and something different.
