Rohan Kriwaczek again takes us into a strange reality that is not quite real. Amanda Palmer rose to indie rock fame as the front woman for The Dresden Dolls, and continues to thrive as a solo act.

In On the Many Deaths of Amanda Palmer Kriwaczek builds on Amanda's playfully gothic image by centering the book around her imagined death.

Upon hearing news of Amanda Palmer's death, her fans began posting their own writing, artwork, and thoughts onto the Internet, eventually creating their own genre called the Palmeresque. By collecting a selection of these submissions in one place and providing commentary, Kriwaczeck explores issues of authorship, celebrity, popular culture, marketing strategies and the corruption of art. Amanda¹s fans will of course enjoy this outrageous depiction of their favorite songstress, and this book also appeals to anyone interested in the essential questions of modern media.
