Abstract:

The lusts of Internet love, the greed and gluttony of the mortgage meltdown, the sloth of those slow to address climate change, the wrath of the techno-warfare state and shock journalism, the envy of Wall Street fat cats and wheeler-dealers, and the immeasurable pride of Americans despite it all. These are the seven deadly sins, circa America, early 21st Century. American Inferno is a retelling of Dante's classic 700-year-old tale for the modern age, an age where men doubt: themselves, others, and the gods ... and, ultimately, where we and the gods go from here. Join Dr. Durant Allegheny, rational scientific disbeliever, and the mysterious Virgil in a journey up the Appalachian Trail and into an inexplicable world of holy men, demons, and all-too-fallible men capable of both good and bad as he seeks both to find the meaning of it all and confront the Powers that may or may not be.
