In Some of the Dead Are Still Breathing, Bowden continues the quest he first set out on--or rather, that grabbed him by the throat and hasn't yet let him go--in the 1995 Blood Orchid ("a first-rate eye-opener to our soul history, the germinal material, vast and brooding, that is always left out of more orthodox (all of them) books about America"--Jim Harrison). Where Blood Orchid cast an eye back over the American past, retelling the history of our love affair with violence in Bowden's incantatory, near-hallucinatory voice, Blues for Cannibals turned to the present, tracing the "soul-sickness" underlying our present malaise. Some of the Dead Are Still Breathing continues the mission of this "accidental trilogy," trawling south of the border--a country Bowden's journalism has stamped as his own--and far afield, to post-terrorism Bali and back again to the deserts of the Southwest, where he writes from the point of view of a rattlesnake, and into the wells of memoir, the perspectives coiling back upon themselves to make "a kind of record of our deep hungers, our deep hungers, our deep appetite for homicide, and our endless emptiness as we prowl the midnight streets looking for that thing we are certain will fix us."
