As a rank amateur who just thinks he can help, this Ames alter ego quickly becomes embroiled in the search for a missing NYU coed. He moves from one scrape to the next, all while trying to escape a life of periodic alcoholism, dead-end relationships, writer?s block, and hours of Internet backgammon. Bored to Death was originally published in McSweeney's Issue 24 and is now the centerpiece of Ames' new collection, The Double Life Is Twice as Good.
