The Book of the Last Word

By Jesi Bender




Want to know what death feels like?
A tidal wave of coagulated mint jelly, the forceful bristles of a candy-apple red, and an indescribable feeling of floating and melting at the same time.

from the Prologue…

Chimera Aoki is a 20-something New Yorker, easy in love and working on a book of famous last words.  Arthur Noyes is older, secretive, existential.  They meet through Chimera’s girlfriend, and are brought together and flung apart through a cosmic collision of coincidence and deceit.

Heavily interwoven with Abrahamic religious influences, THE BOOK OF THE LAST WORD culminates with Chimera discovering Arthur’s secret and having to decide if what Arthur has done is either immensely beneficial or horrifically damaging.
