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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Twenty-one stories and a novella to disturb and delight. * Bookseller *
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 *
Palahniuk is in sublime, caustic form; his story subjects even more wickedly bold. -- Tanya Sweeney * Independent *
Savage, disturbing and frequently hilarious, this is writing at its boldest. * Grazia *
A rough but enjoyable ride. -- Chris Kirkham * Shortlist *
