Chuck Palahniuk will present Make Something Up: Stories You Can't Unread, and Fight Club 2

 

 

EVENT OVERVIEW:  Chuck Palahniuk will present his New Story Collection Make Something Up: Stories You Can't Unread and Issue #1 of the Comic Fight Club 2 at a Multimedia Event. Co-Sponsored by Rainy Day Books and INK's Middle of The Map Fest.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Chuck Palahniuk's 14 previous Novels are the Bestselling Fight Club, which was made into a film by David Fincher; Survivor; Invisible Monsters; Choke, which was made into a film by director Clark Gregg; Lullaby; Diary; Haunted; Rant; Snuff; Pygmy; Tell-All; Damned; Doomed and Beautiful You.  He is also the Author of Fugitives and Refugees, a nonfiction profile of Portland, Oregon, published as part of the Crown Journeys series, and the nonfiction collection Stranger Than Fiction.  He lives in the Pacific Northwest.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Representing work that spans several years, Make Something Up is a compilation of 22 stories and one novella that will disturb and delight.  The absurdity of both life and death are on full display; in "Zombies," the best and brightest of a high school prep 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-color joke to a father in his final moments, while in "Tunnel of Love," a massage therapist runs the curious practice of providing 'relief' to dying clients.  And in "Expedition," fans will be thrilled to find to see a side of Tyler Durden never seen before in a precusor story to Fight Club.  Funny, caustic, bizarre, poignant; these stories represent everything readers have come to love and expect from Chuck Palahniuk.
