Anthony McGowan

Anthony McGowan was born in Manchester in 1965. Educated at a Catholic comprehensive, he won't say that his character's schooldays are exactly based on his own but he certainly writes from experience. Before turning to writing full-time, Anthony gained a PhD in Philosophy, worked as a nightclub bouncer, an Open University tutor, a journalist and a civil servant. He is married with two children. In 2006 he won the Teenage Booktrust Prize for Henry Tumour, which was also shortlisted for the Sheffield Children's Book Award, Lancashire Children's Book of the Year Award, Redbridge Teenage Book Award and the Catalyst Award.

Synopsis of this title

Conor O'Neil is in Hell. No, really. While chasing his dog, he got run over by an ice-cream truck, and now he's sentenced to eternal damnation. He's stuck in a corner of Hell specifically designed for his maximum torture -- lined with bookshelves and droning educational radio programs. Then he realizes that his personal version of Hell might be someone else's idea of Heaven -- and vice versa. He sets out on a filthy, funny, and forbidden journey to search for his opposite number, accompanied by his repulsive pet dog, a depressed cross-dressing Viking, and Clarence, his personal devil. Can he do it? Conor is hellbent on finding out
