Bestseller​
is a novel about breaking off the literary clichés, ignoring or laughing at them. This book is an absolute hell for writers and a paradise for readers. Pierre Saunaige is an unpopular French writer. Only twelve men attended the presentation of his latest novel. Pierre decides that the only way to become popular is to commit suicide and so he carries out his PR intent and goes to hell. But hell is not the place we think it is. Writers have their own hell, so-called Literature Hell where every writer is tortured the same way they used to torture readers, for example: Jack Kerouac can’t stop walking and Samuel Beckett endlessly waits for somebody. So Dante Alighieri warmly welcomes newcomer Pierre to writers' hell, where BBC (Big Brother’s Channel) is controlled by George Orwell, William Shakespeare runs the hotel Hothello and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is the celebrity in self-murderers anonymous club. Curious things happen in Literature Hell. And while Pierre tries to investigate everything along with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, one of his fans on earth tries to solve the cipher code which Pierre left to her in a signed copy of his latest novel.
