While bargaining with the Angel of Death for a second chance at life, John quickly discovers that fixing the mistakes of his past is difficult - especially when it turns out that destiny isn’t quite as etched in stone as he thought. "…well-paced, vintage Foster. Foster makes the familiar all the funnier by catching you by surprise… The Death of Me… at times gets funny enough to almost become the death of all of us." —Calgary Herald
