As if waking up to find that you are, in fact, dead and residing in your own personal purgatory (a youth hostel in Cornwall c. 1992), wasn’t bad enough, Dave also has to contend with the revelation that he was murdered. With the assistance of maverick angels, Gobe and Arial, Dave investigates the cause of his own premature demise and tries to find out who killed him. Filled with surreal humour that has drawn comparisons with Monty Python and Douglas Adams, Rebecca Roger’s debut novel won 2021 Women in Comedy Print Prize.
Rebecca Rogers grew up in Birmingham on a diet of Blackadder and Monty Python. For a long time, she thought Michael Palin was her uncle (he’s not). Now a civil servant by day and writer by night, she’s a proud mum to two grown-up boys and lives in the glorious south west of England.
