One cold March morning, a young woman lay dying of multiple stab wounds on her own driveway. She came through the nightmare that followed, laughing. This book describes what happened in detail. Julie Chimes tells of her out-of-body experiences during the crisis, as well as the dreams and premonitions leading up to it. She recounts the frenzied attack by a paranoid schizophrenic. She describes what it feels like to die, and then unforseeably, to live to tell the tale.
