Tender Branson, the last surviving member of the Creedish death cult, has commandeered a Boeing 747, emptied of passengers, in order to tell his story to the plane's black box before it crashes. Brought up by the repressive cult and, like all Creedish younger sons, hired out as a domestic servant, Tender finds himself suddenly famous when his fellow cult members all commit suicide. As media messiah he ascends to the very top of the freak-show heap before finally and apocalyptically spiralling out of control.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A comedy of horrors, a pantomimic romp through America's obsession with secrets and confessions" * Arena *
"Maybe our generation has found its Don DeLillo" * Bret Easton Ellis *
"Immensely entertaining...an extremly funny account of an outsider stuck inside America" * Independent on Sunday *
"Survivor comes bowling forth out of the same dark corner of the mind as Fight Club... Like its predecessor, it is a terminal novel, a novel that applies the firing-squad principle to extort tortured eloquence from its doomed narrator" * Esquire *
"Brilliant satire and savagely funny, Survivor offers much to admire. Palahniuk displays a swiftian gift for satire, as well as a knack for crafting mesmerizing sentences that loom with stark, prickly prose and repetitive rhythms" * San Francisco Chronicle *

“Survivor”

Follow the life of Tender Branson as he ascends to the highest echelons of fame and then swan-dives spectacularly in a Boeing 747. Many adjectives have been used to describe Palahniuk's style but few of them can... More
