Following the acclaim for their innovative edition of Dante's Inferno , Sandow Birk and Marcus Sanders guide us to the next level of the afterlife in Dante's Purgatorio . The second book of Dante Alighieri's classic poem The Divine Comedy , this version of Purgatorio couples a clever literary adaptation incorporating modern urban speech and contemporary references with powerful illustrations inspired by Gustave DorA©'s famous engravings. Whereas Inferno was primarily situated in a city that bears a curious resemblance to modern Los Angeles, Purgatorio is set in a surreal San Francisco Bay Area, an outlandish and hopeful milieu for those who have a chance to wash their sins away. Together, the sardonic yet playful combination of text and images comprise a vivid retelling of this masterpiece.
