520    On a ravaged street overlooking a cemetery in Beirut's 
       Christian enclave, we meet an eccentric young man named 
       Pavlov, the son of a local undertaker. When his father 
       meets a sudden and untimely death, Pavlov is approached by
       a colorful member of the mysterious Hellfire Society-an 
       anti-religious sect that, among many rebellious and often 
       salacious activities, arranges secret burial for outcasts 
       who have been denied last rites because of their religion 
       or sexuality. Pavlov agrees to take on his father's work 
       for the society, and over the course of the novel he 
       becomes a survivor-chronicler of his embattled and fading 
       community at the heart of Lebanon's civil war. His new 
       role introduces him to an unconventional cast of 
       characters, including a father searching for his son's 
       body, a mysterious woman who takes up residence on 
       Pavlov's stairs after a bombing, and the flamboyant head 
       of the Hellfire Society, El-Marquis. Deftly combining 
       comedy with tragedy, gritty reality with surreal absurdity,
       Beirut Hellfire Society asks: What, after all, can be 
       preserved in the face of certain change and imminent 
       death? The answer is at once propulsive, elegiac, 
       outrageous, profane, and transcendent-and a profoundly 
       moving fable on what it means to live through war.
