9780099437970: Non-Fiction: (True Stories)

Chuck Palahniuk's world has been, well, different from yours and mine. The pieces that comprise Non-Fiction prove just how different, in ways both highly entertaining and deeply unsettling. Encounters with alternative culture heroes Marilyn Manson and Juliette Lewis; the peculiar wages of fame attendant on the big budget film production of the movie Fight Club; life as an assembly-line drive train installer by day, hospice volunteer driver by night; the really peculiar lives of submariners; the really violent world of college wrestlers; the underground world of anabolic steroid gobblers; the harrowing circumstances of his father's murder and the trial of his killer - each essay or vignette offers a unique facet of existence as lived in and/or observed by one of America's most flagrantly daring and original literary talents.

About the Author:

Chuck Palahniuk's eleven previous novels are the bestselling Tell-All, Pygmy, Snuff, Rant, Haunted, Lullaby, Diary, Choke - which has been made into a film by director Clark Gregg, starring Sam Rockwell and Anjelica Huston - Survivor, Invisible Monsters, and Fight Club, which was made into a film by director David Fincher. He is also the author of the nonfiction profile of Portland, Oregon, Fugitives and Refugees, and the nonfiction collection Stranger Than Fiction. He lives in the Pacific Northwest.

Review:

"All are spicy, clever dispatches from the frontier between macho and camp" -- Freddy Hamilton Telegraph "Casts a gleefully amoral eye at the world around him... You couldn't, as the man says, make it up" -- Sean O'Hagan Observer "Comically rueful and tragically bloodshot" The Times "An immensely skilful writer. He has a sober, searching intelligence and he examines Hollywood and the prairie states with an unflinching candour and a rare strain of melancholy" Daily Telegraph "Like a noxious Douglas Coupland, Palahniuk charts new-felt and totally contemporary categories of despair" -- Ali Smith Guardian
