Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dark riffing on modernity is the reason people read Palahniuk. His books are not so much novels as jagged fables, cautionary tales about the creeping peril represented by almost everything.” Time, praise for author
“Like Edgar Allen Poe, Palahniuk is a bracingly toxic purveyor of dread and mounting horror. He makes nihilism fun.” Vanity Fair, praise for author
“One of the most feverish imaginations in American letters.” Washington Post, praise for the author
“Chuck Palahniuk’s stories don’t unfold. They hurtle headlong, changing lanes in threes, and banging off the guard rails of modern fiction…With his love of contemporary fairytales that are gritty and dirty rather than pretty, Palahniuk is the likeliest inheritor of Vonnegut’s place in American writing.” San Francisco Chronicle, praise for author
