Fired up by the release of Dan Brown’s Dante-inspired new thriller, Inferno, we’ve put together a massive display on our first floor honoring all nine circles of Dante’s hell: Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Anger, Heresy, Violence, Fraud & Treachery. From Fifty Shades (Lust) to Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Violence) to The Vanishers (Fraud, Treachery, actually that one covers a few…) to Garfield Weighs His Options (Gluttony) to Slaughterhouse Five (Vonnegut was an atheist – Limbo!) you are invited to gleefully descend into the fiery pits of damnation with us. Come on, you’ll like it. It’s warm down here.
You will also find among these sinful authors and characters the original guide to the dark side, Dante’s Inferno, as translated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
You thought the Texas summer was hot. Just stand in front of this display a while. Yowza.
(Kudos to Flippo for creating the giant Inferno book in the center of the display by hand.)
