The Living End

(1979)
A novel by

 

"Stanley Elkin's imagination should be declared a national landmark. When the moment comes to write the history of AMerican English in the late twentieth century, his novels will be a fundamental source."
Paul Auster


Killed during a senseless holdup, kindhearted Ellerbee finds himself on a whirlwind tour of a distressingly familiar theme park Heaven and inner-city Hell, where he learns the truth about God's love and wrath.
