Mortimer has avoiding everything in life; Family, work, people and death. But when death comes early he finds himself on an adventure of social anxiety in the depths of Hell, the purgatory and Limbo. Wargo's characters are very likable and Avoiding Mortimer is one of the best in the NBAS series to date.
If you like movie "Beetlejuice" then you will love this book. From a boring life, to a vomited pile of ants; looking for a soul, boding making factories and a strange Bizzaro after-life this is one hell of a read.
J.W. Wargo is an author to watch for I am sure he has some more stuff up his sleeve, and may be in your town, he is a hitchhiker wandering person.
