The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult

The Tenth Circle

Jodi Picoult

Can Daniel Stone, comic book artist, meet his deadline, find his daughter, save his marriage and confront the past he has kept hidden for fifteen years? There's a lot going on in this book, but if you don't like the melodrama and the bigged up writing, the additional graphic art story provides another dimension. Will you be able to solve the puzzle hidden within its pages?

Extract

There should have been a tenth circle, a tiny spot the size of the head of a pin, with room for infinite masses. It would be overcrowded with professors who hid in ivy-covered towers instead of facing their broken families. With little girls who had grown up overnight. With husbands who didn't speak of their past but instead poured it out onto a blank white page. With women who pretended they could be the wife of one and the lover of another and keep the two selves distinct. With anyone who told himself he was living the perfect life, despite all evidence to the contrary.
