In the world of the not-so-distant future, dying is easy - it's the afterliving that's hard! Nicky Rosewell hadn't expected to be a candidate for biotechnological resurrection at age 27, but he's unfortunately killed by a suicide bomber while taking a shortcut through the local mall after his lunch break.
Having idled away his real life, Nicky's immediate prospects of making better use of his afterlife seem rather slim. The beleagued community of albino, pink-eyed zombies is dominated by the very old, and subject to all manner of social prejudice and discrimination. What's worse, Nicky finds it difficult to raise a laugh, as no one seems willing any longer to understand his jokes. When the Rehabilitation Center in which he's living is besieged by an angry mob of the living, however, it seems that the situation might be getting too serious by far.
