Can our hoodie hero make it through nine circles of Hell and back again? Will he find love with his soulmate, Beatrice? Discover the city of Dis where everybody disses everybody. Meet Frankenstein, the lovesick bouncer with the bling-bling. Come face to face with the Furies, a gang of snake-haired females in T-shirts. Prepare for a host of gluttons, bigots and plunderers from the world of history and politics. John Agard fires Dante's Inferno into the 21st century in a red-hot retelling, with wicked artwork from Satoshi Kitamura.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'One hopes that in this, the National Year of Reading, Frances Lincoln's wonderful Inferno will be read throughout the land.'
I took the risk of promoting this exuberant collection at an academoc conference in Italy! Even a Dante scholar in the audience seemed charmed by Agard's 'take' on this classic text, superbly illustrated by Satoshi Kitamura who has become a regular illustrator of Agard's poetry. If it makes one reader go to the original, all to the good; there's plenty to admire in its own right in 13 dramatic cantos for teenage readers.
