Agnes in the Fifth Bardo
“Drat, I’m Dead!” With these simple words, Agnes Blatt begins her journey through the afterlife. In the first few days following her death, she crosses paths with Jerry, her high school crush, and Patsy, an intrepid and charming dog. The three become entangled; they spend the rest of the book defending their union. They fight their way past demons and angels, gods and goddesses in a variety of exotic realms. By the end of the story, they can truthfully say they have been to hell and back.
