Twenty-one stories and a novella that will disturb and delight, from the author of Fight Club. In 'Knock, Knock', a son hopes to tell one last off-colour joke to his dying father , while in 'Tunnel of Love', a massage therapist runs the curious practice of providing 'relief' to dying clients.

Publisher Description

Twenty-one stories and a novella that will disturb and delight, from the author of Fight Club. The absurdity of both life and death are on full display. In 'Zombies', the best and brightest of a high school become tragically addicted to the latest drug craze- electric shocks from cardiac defibrillators. In 'Knock, Knock', a son hopes to tell one last off-colour joke to his dying father , while in 'Tunnel of Love', a massage therapist runs the curious practice of providing 'relief' to dying clients. And in 'Excursion', Fight Club fans will be thrilled to find a side of Tyler Durden never seen before.

Funny, caustic, bizarre, poignant; these stories represent everything readers have come to love and expect from Chuck Palahniuk.

Review

A rough but enjoyable ride. -- Chris Kirkham Shortlist Savage, disturbing and frequently hilarious, this is writing at its boldest. Grazia Palahniuk is in sublime, caustic form; his story subjects even more wickedly bold. -- Tanya Sweeney Independent Looking back at Palahniuk's body of work it seems shocking readers comes naturally to him; if that is what you're looking for, you won't be disappointed here. He clearly relishes pushing boundaries, playing with the absurd and the grotesque as a way to hold up a mirror to society. -- Claire Inman Curious Animal Magazine Twenty-one stories and a novella to disturb and delight. Bookseller
