Snatched from a mountainside above Lake Rotoiti, New Zealand, John Gallas embarks on a guided tour of Dante's Bad, Better and Good Place. He encounters wonders: a skiing Pohutukawa Tree, a Golden Kiwi, the affectionate dead and more. An ingenious New Zealand spin on Dante with an introduction by the New Zealand Poet Laureate Bill Manhire, The Little Sublime Comedy witnesses horrors, hopes, despairs and delights. Written in 147 small Songs, this 21st Century Dante reassesses the deadliest of sins, the moral dimensions of forgivable wickedness, and the most splendid qualities of modern man and woman.
