From the Publisher
Having somewhat reluctantly escaped from Hell, she now wanders
the Purgatory that is Earth as a ghostly spirit, seeking her
do-gooding celebrity parents, fighting the malign control of Satan,
recounting the disgracefully funny (to us, anyway) encounter with
her grandfather in a fetid highway rest stop in Upstate New York
when she . . . oh, never mind, and climaxing in a rendezvous with
destiny on the new, totally plastic continent in the Pacific
called, not at all accidentally, Madlantis.
Dante Alighieri, watch your back, Chuck
Palahniuk is gaining on you.

Praise for Damned
• "A far sunnier work than either author or location would
suggest. . . . His more mordant satire is reserved for the living,
focusing, as ever, on our manic solipsism and affectless
self-regard; and in this novel in particular on our refusal to look
death and ageing in the eye, and the materialistic tactics we use
to distract ourselves from the void." --The Guardian
• "Crisp and entertaining . . . this is a winning and funny
book." --The Washington Post
• "Damned combines elements of Judy Bloom''s
coming-of-age classic, Are You There, God? It''s Me,
Margaret, with Dante''s Divine Comedy, with a heavy
infusion of the 1980s classic The Breakfast Club."
--Wall Street Journal
