Narrating the Devil's random musings on key dates through history, "The Devil's Diaries" reveals Satan's part in such things as the Fall; musical moments at the crossroads; the invention of the tetrapak, making work for idle hands; small print; Faust; decorating hell circle by circle; the joy of getting all the best tunes; and, lawyers. The Dark One reveals his disquiet at the way some of this finest ideas have been hijacked and credited elsewhere; and confesses his frustration that much of his best work goes unappreciated. We also gain extraordinary insights into his private thoughts, and discover that even Satan gets depressed.
Nicholas D. Satan was born some time before the "Big Bang". He quickly moved up the ranks to become chief executive of Satancorp, which he has run successfully for several millennia. Of his many accomplishments, he is perhaps best known for his flare for contract negotiations, and as author of How to Win Fiends and Influence People. Satan enjoys sketching plans for the Armaggedon, killing off the Kennedys and painting the town red with his mistress, the Whore of Babylon.
