Pierre Saunaige is an unpopular French writer. Only twelve men attended the presentation of his latest novel. He decides that the only way to become popular is to commit suicide and Pierre takes that PR step and goes to hell. But the hell is not the place we think it is. Writers have their own hell, a so-called Literature Hell where every writer is tortured the same way they used to torture their readers: where Jack Kerouac can’t stop walking and Samuel Beckett is left endlessly waiting for someone.
So Dante Alighieri welcomes Pierre to hell where the BBC (Big Brother’s Channel) is controlled by George Orwell, William Shakespeare runs the hotel Hothello and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is the celebrity in the suiciders anonymous club. And everything you see is Literature.
“It’s really the book for people who know how rich the reading worlds of the great are, and that all the distractions of modern technology will never come close, not even the million-plus films that distract audiences from thinking and re-thinking their dreams. “
