The Five Jerks You Meet on Earth

“I don't trust all this new touchy-feely stuff we're doing up here. This whole Five People You Meet in Heaven is pretty new. Did you know that, Al?” “No—” “Only started doing it a couple of hundred years ago. Don't know why.

Ever wish that in the afterlife you'll be able to exact revenge on the people who made your life so miserable? The Five Jerks You Meet on Earth takes on that sidesplitting premise. Loser Al Mitchell finally gets a chance to win-even though he's dead. Al Mitchell is middle-aged, divorced, childless, balding, unemployed, stoop-shouldered, and dead--but these are the least of his problems. When Mitchell dies in a chaotic merry-go-round wreck, he goes to Heaven hoping to discover the meaning of his sad-sack life by meeting the five most influential people he's known. But too bad they're busy meeting with more important people! In their place, Al meets his grade school lunch lady, family plumber, and a hairdresser who turned down all of his romantic advances. So much for peace in the afterlife! Intent to make amends, Heaven's powers-that-be allow Mitchell to return to Earth (with help from a bumbling angel named Adrian) to achieve a goal even better than enlightenment. He gets to exact revenge on the five jerks who made his life so miserable! Ray Zardetto's The Five Jerks You Meet on Earth hilariously--but respectfully--parodies Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven. It turns the premise of that inspiring best-seller on its head--and it speaks to the avenging loser in all of us! For more about the book visit www.thefivejerksyoumeetonearth.com

Heaven can wait. In the meantime...why not go to Hell? Every once in a while a little book comes along that sheds light on our desire for intimacy, our determination to grow spiritually, and our collective yearning to define the boundaries of the soul. The Five People You Meet in Hell is not that little book. A sensitive everyman, Edgy works a meaning-less job at a seaside tourist trap. When a freak accident sends him to "the other side," he encounters a series of strangers compelled to explain the meaning of life. Running the gamut from annoying and incoherent to irritating and hard to follow, these individuals all share a basic desire with virtually every other soul in the universe: to make quick money from a made-for-television movie. The Five People You Meet in Hell is as illuminating as a short-circuited night light and contains all the insight of a chocolate-dipped fortune cookie (with none of the fat). If you've ever died, expect to die, know someone who has died, raise alpacas, collect Hummel figurines, breathe air, or enjoy line dancing, you must buy this book. You will never think about thirteen bucks the same way again. If you experience erections lasting more than four hours, please consult your physician.
