Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A quintessential Elkin protagonist, Mr. Ellerbee — until he is senselessly killed during a liquor-store holdup — is a good husband, a good boss, and an overall good sport who cares greatly about his fellow human beings. After a whirlwind tour of the afterlife, Ellerbee finds himself in Hell for a litany of minor offenses, including taking the Lord's name in vain, keeping his store open on the Sabbath, and thinking that Heaven looks like a theme park. And so begins Elkin's hilarious, imaginative vision of life after death.

About the Author

Elkin is a two-time recipient of the National Book Critics Circle Award, and is widely regarded as one of the most important writers of the contemporary period.
