Witty, eccentric, original and very funny.
by Chantal M.
David Sunderland’s first book hosts a wonderful array of characters both earthly and divine. The intricate world of the angels is painted with many dramatic flourishes, and the internecine quarrels of the celestial host are entertainingly represented. We get to know the main character, Tony, as he is tempted and struggles to do the right thing in a zone where he feels like a fish out of water. A very enjoyable and ingenious read

David is British, almost French, and Brazilian by osmosis. His day job entails occasional bureaucratic absurdities but also the privilege of working for a bigger cause, which frequently provides a catalyst for creativity. His literary output over the last 20 years has been eclectic, including poetry (as yet unpublished); satirical plays, songs and sketches (each with unique performances); and Angeland (his first novel). He lives just over the border from Geneva with his impatient and adorable Franco-Brazilian wife and 30-odd plants.
