Good Americans Go To Paris When They Die by Howard Waldman. Out Now!

The Kingdom of Heaven has been downsized to a single city. And to save overcrowding, God has a new chosen race and set of entry qualifications.

In the modern hereafter only good Americans go to Paris when they die!

But not even a divinely ordered bureaucracy is infallible and five not-so-good Americans find themselves posthumously thrown together and trapped in a surreal limbo:

Randy 1900s marine Louis Forster;
Maggie Thompson, an over-sexed 1930s fan dancer;
neurotic 1940s New York intellectual Seymour Stein;
Helen Ricchi, the mysterious and bookish wallflower suspected of foul play after her husband's disappearance in the 1950s;
modern-day Las Vegas boor, truck driver Max Pilsudski.

And the ill-assorted desperate departed will stop at nothing in a seemingly impossible quest to return to the land of the living and repair flawed lives and fractured loves.
Heaven and an Orwellian Hell share a fragile frontier in Howard Waldman's masterfully woven novel of profound humanity and lethally-honed humor.

What the critics are saying about Howard Waldman …

The acerbic wit and sustained irony of a Woody Allen or a Kurt Vonnegut. David Gardiner. Gold Dust Magazine.

This is a man in superb control of his material, a man who knows his characters inside out and who can bring them across to us with a sense of reality that is quite beautiful. He has a wicked turn of phrase that can bring the reader from a smile to a laugh. Chris Williams. Tregolwyn Book Reviews

This book is destined for greatness and I would not be at all surprised to see the name Howard Waldman on the bestseller list. Alastair Rosie.
