Description

"Impish and delightful, a hilarious Zagat's guide to heaven!"Ray Bradbury "A fantastical, profound, hilarious and rollicking good ride through the heavens and hells of the Afterlife! A wonderful book." -- Margaret ChoBoring Is SafeS. F. WeeklyA mock ZAGAT Guide to the Lord's domain, Dirk Quigby's Guide to the Afterlife is a sly and satirical glimpse into what would happen if a Madison Avenue mad man gave heaven a PR makeover. As the book's framing narrative develops, the titular ad man finds that his succinct reviews of the world's religions (using a convenient ZAGAT-style rating scale) inflame believers of all faiths. It's a risk the real-life author is also taking. Considering her vocal support for scientific research and rational thought, and her role as an adviser for a number of science advocacy organizations, she probably doesn't mind a bit of religious controversy. All the better for us nonbelieving heathens: As King demonstrates, the devil also has the best jokes The New York Journal of Books."This is the most delightful book this reviewer has read in a while... King does a masterful job at mixing short vignettes of Dirk's experience with the Devil, his travels to the many heavens, his newly discovered lover, and the factual descriptions of the final paradise of each faith. The Guide to the Afterlife is a mixture of fact and fiction, faith and mysticism at its best."The Midwest Review of BooksDirk Quigby's Guide to the Afterlife , E. E. KingShopping around for where you spend eternity can prove quite overwhelming. "Dirk Quigby's Guide to the Afterlife: All You Need to Know to Choose the Right Heaven" is a humorous analysis of the world's religions with a focus on the afterlife. Tying the analysis together with a quirky and offbeat novel, the laughs roll together well with plenty of substance. "Dirk Quigby's Guide to the Afterlife" is excellently composed and a read that is fun and very hard to set down.
