Forest Life by Shane Crash
“I’ve learned that most people never bother to construct time machines. They’re perfectly content to stumble through life, seemingly unthinking. They’re unaware of their constant unending effort to suppress the despair they feel every day, the despair they feel at the impossibility of continuing to exist without knowing why they exist at all.”

Shane Crash, Forest Life

“Before I sleep I normally lie awake and think of the future. I've resolved I can't understand life the way I can understand an equation or formula. For so long I've wanted to find concrete answers or die trying. It's hard at first to find comfort in not knowing or to make peace with it. But I think it is the only way to make it in this life. Getting stuck on a question only makes me estranged from the world.”
Shane Crash, Forest Life

“ When I started writing Forest Life, I was suicidal and drunk because I had lost someone I love to a tragedy. Afterward, my question was this: why love when death and suffering are inevitable? I won’t reveal my solution to this problem, but I do present it in the pages of the book. These are only a few of the issues I grapple with in the story and I hope that you’ll read the story and consciously address your own uncertainty and fear." - Shane Crash, Provoketive Magazine Write-Up 2012”

“" Me? I'm afraid if God does exist, if there is a creator, he's just as confused about life and death and love as I am. Mostly I'm afraid that I'll continue to exist after I die.”
