Synopsis

In this lively collection of new writing, seven of our most acclaimed authors and thinkers go head to head with Lust, Greed, Gluttony, Envy, Wrath, Sloth and Vanity to explore what we really mean when we talk about sin. The resulting mixture of erudite and playful essays and startling new fiction might not make you a better person, but it will certainly give you pause for thought when you’re next laying the law down or – heaven forfend – about to do something beyond the pale yourself.
