The latest work from Pulitzer Prize winning writer Robert Olen Butler is a shockingly funny account of newscaster Hatcher McCord's stay in Hell. As McCord anchors the Evening News From Hell, he reports on the exploits of other Hell dwellers including Shakespeare, Dante, Mother Teresa, J Edgar Hoover, and his girlfriend, the beheaded Anne Boleyn! I found this satirical work to be hilarious, but I think enjoyment of this book will be wholly based on personal taste. I suspect half the readers of this book will find it comical and the other half tasteless. I found the utter tastelessness itself to be refreshingly satisfying.
