"...meditation on love and death in the post-AIDS era of terrorism, S&M, drones, and pet cats — a mock epic with nods to Milton and Walter Benjamin. The narrative opens from the perspective of the devil...So, reader, settle down with Satan, if you dare. You are invited to listen in on Satan’s fireside chats with Death and the 14 Saints." Washington Independent -- I loved this book. Alameddine's writing is so beautiful and this book was evocative of San Francisco in the late 80'-90's.
