Everything in this novel is over the top. Each character is beyond grand and their adventures are somehow even more grandiose. You peek in on a conversation between a man and his typewriter. These typewriter keys click out the most fascinating and bizarre articles about the underworld. The authors view of hell is jaded but at the same time almost cheerful. Each time the typewriter begins to whir, we see through the eyes of a Hades newspaper writer, James Boswell. His writings range the gambit from a Sherlock Holmes story to a full Hand-Book to Hades. Bangs has beautiful way of merging the extraordinary happenings in hell with mundane everyday occurrences. In between are loads of shits and giggles. Stay up late waiting for The Enchanted Type-Writer.
