    It's not easy being Satan. Thrown out of heaven, he is condemned for eternity to listen to Edith Piaf and Elvis Presley. Still, there are new arrivals to welcome: the Professor (James Grout), whose unerring optimism is a nasty blow and Thomas (Jimmy Mulville), one of the vilest people around. Then Satan has to deal with a rebellion and with human depravity on the increase, Hell's getting over-crowded. It's time for a new assistant. But will Scumspawn (Robert Duncan) get the job? Andy Hamilton stars as Satan in the comedy that's satirical, philosophical, inventive, topical - and timeless.

  • The Star Witness

    Andy Hamilton

    Product Code: BDMAP
    Paperback
    From comedy legend Andy Hamilton comes this consistently hilarious and brilliant debut novel bursting with satire, wit and even a little heart. Kevin Carver is a household name. A popular TV soap star, he's coasting through life in the same semi-detached, slightly smug way he's always done. But when he dumps his much-too-young-for-him girlfriend in the same callous way he's come to treat those around him, he makes the first in a series of mistakes. One poor decision leads to another and, as Kevin wades deeper into a moral grey area, things go from bad to very much worse. The national treasure finds himself the subject of vitriolic press attacks, a police investigation, and so much public loathing he begins to wonder if he has any chance of receiving justice. As the line blurs between his own life and that of the character he plays on TV, Kevin must face the consequences of his actions if he is ever to right his sinking ship. The Star Witness is the story of one self-regarding man's descent into disgrace and his journey back to join the human race. A pin-sharp satire on the shallows of modern media culture and the dysfunctional relationship we all have with the idea of 'celebrity', it will keep you laughing, cringing and guessing until the very last page.
