Milton Pitt leads an uneventful life, with a dull job and a secret longing for adventure. One morning, after he is hit by a speeding car, he suffers an out-of-body experience and awakens back in his bedroom. Everything is just the same - that is, except for the bloody footprints leading to the chimney... Is this his chance to lead a better life? Was it just a dream? Or is he simply dead? In this richly inventive and humorous novella, Edward Vass brings the themes of Dante's Divine Comedy 700 years into the future.

Reviews for Milton in Purgatory

'A funny, original and quintessentially British account of a twenty-first century man confronted by the afterlife.' - Abbie Walker (@ab_reads), London Book Fair's 2019 Bookstagrammer of the Year 'A weird and wonderful tale, full of violent twists and turns. This surprising debut novella punches above its weight and pulls no punches.' - Jennifer Rushworth, author of Discourses of Mourning in Dante, Petrarch, and Proust
