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 (UK)
• "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
