Book: Palahniuk Chuck «Make Something Up»

Make Something Up

This book includes 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.
