DANTE: A DIVINE COMEDY
Written and illustrated by: Ellen Wetmore
Professor Dante Alighieri is on his way to a job interview with Virgil, a poet and chauffer. But something doesn’t sit right with Dante. Crows, dead people, and prophets speak to him, the cops are out to get him, and are those college students chained down? Beatrice, his host, assures him college life at Everwhite is paradise, and why shouldn’t it be?
It’s a great opportunity… for the right person.
From the customs line at Logan airport to a meeting in the Ninth Ring of Hell, Dante has to figure out how to survive at Everwhite, and the surrounding Commonwealth, without the privilege of being white.
