    ';As gleefully, vividly, hilariously obscene as you'd expect. . . . Irreverent and hugely entertaining."e; NPR From the bestselling author ofFight Club comes a dark and brilliant satire about adolescence, Hell, and the Devil. Madison is the thirteen-year-old daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire. Abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, she dies over the holiday, presumably of a marijuana overdose. The last thing she remembers is getting into a town car and falling asleep. Then she's waking up in Hell. Literally. Madison soon finds that she shares a cell with a motley crew of young sinners: a cheerleader, a jock, a nerd, and a punk rocker, united by their doomed fate, like an afterschool detention for the damned. Together they form an odd coalition and march across the unspeakable landscape of Hell--full of used diapers, dandruff, WiFi blackout spots, evil historical figures, and one horrific call center--to confront the Devil himself.

    Balthazar - beziehungsweise der Mann, der sich inzwischen Balthazar nennt - und seine Frau Marla Singer leben in einem heruntergewirtschafteten Motel mit dubiosen Zimmernachbarn. Marla ist zum zweitem Mal schwanger, und die Geburt steht kurz bevor. Aber Balthazar ist nicht der Vater - es ist Tyler Durdens Kind, und der macht sich groe Sorgen um den Zustand der Welt, die er seinem Erben hinterlassen wird. Denn eine neue Organisation macht dem ehemaligen Projekt Chaos Konkurrenz bei der Beherrschung der Menschheit, und so ist Tyler gezwungen, eine Allianz mit dem unwahrscheinlichsten aller Partner einzugehen: Balthazar. Kultautor Chuck Palahniuk ist noch lange nicht fertig mit seiner Abrechnung mit der Gesellschaft! "e;Fight Club"e; war der Befreiungsschlag einer in Nichtigkeiten versinkenden Generation von Konsumbesessenen, und die Fortsetzung des erfolgreichen Romans als Graphic Novel stand dem in nichts nach. Palahniuks schonungsloser Blick hinter die dnne Fassade unserer sogenannten Zivilisation hat auch im dritten Teil von "e;Fight Club"e; nichts an Schrfe verloren. Der Eisner-Award-Gewinner Cameron Stewart zieht erneut alle Register der Comic-Kunst, um Palahniuks nihilistische Vision in Bilder zu fassen.

    First there was the insomnia. Then there were the support groups that helped him sleep. Then Marla Singer turned up, muscled in on ascending bowel cancer and ruined everything. Then he met Tyler Durden. Then came Fight Club. Fight Club is the psychological story of a man's descent into an underground world of violence. Mild mannered product-recall-specialist by day, tortured insomniac by night, our narrator meets Tyler Durden - part-time projectionist, banquet waiter, soap-maker and anarchic genius. Together they create Fight Club. In Fight Club our narrator, and men like him, can escape the monotony of their daily work-dominated, consumer-driven, image-obsessed lives. In Fight Club you can escape who the world thinks you ought to be. Soon there are Fight Clubs in basement bars in towns and cities across the country; men with cuts, bruises, stitches, missing teeth wherever you look, and Tyler Durden has become an urban legend. But when Tyler invents Project Mayhem and things begin to escalate, there's only one thing to do: shut down Fight Club. But have they created a monster they can't control?Chuck Palahniuk's visceral and unflinching cult novel stars Patrick Kennedy, Sam Hazeldine and Elaine Cassidy.

    No author can shock readers quite like bestselling author Chuck Palahniuk ("e;Fight Club,"e; "e;Choke,"e; "e;Damned"e;), whose meditations on the darkest depths of the American ego have been known to induce fainting fits in his audiences. Palahniuk channels both Stephen King and John Cheever in this singularly sinister and hilarious short story, straight from the passive-aggressive front lines of modern marriage, where a wife's frustration, along with the family cat, become weapons of mass destruction.Rachel married Ted because he was uncomplicated and loyal. But he was also devoted to his wretched house (done up in black granite, black appliances, even black dishware) and his first love, an old, flatulent cat named Belinda Carlisle. Once Rachel becomes pregnant, Ted reluctantly agrees to move and give up the cat. But the house doesn't sell, and Belinda Carlisle still haunts their home: every day the creature becomes fatter and more malodorous. When the house burns to the ground in a freak conflagration and the couple's daughter, April, is born blind soon thereafter, the marriage is never the same again. Only on a business trip three years later does Rachel begin to reckon with the damage.In an Orlando motel room far from Ted and April, Rachel wonders: Is her simple-minded husband more vindictive and manipulative than even Rachel could have imagined? How far will she go to keep the upper hand-a bit of emotional and physical torture, perhaps? Will she win the battle, only to lose so much else?If all is fair in love and war, there are few contemporary writers better equipped than Palahniuk to travel the extremes, right to the chilling intersection of "e;I do"e; and "e;I'm damned."e; ABOUT THE AUTHORChuck Palahniuk is the author of "e;Fight Club"e; and "e;Choke,"e; as well as ten other novels-most recently "e;Damned"e;-and two books of nonfiction. Shooting will begin this summer on the film version of his novel of linked stories, "e;Haunted."e; His forthcoming novel "e;Doomed"e; will be released later this year, as will the award-winning short film "e;Romance,"e; an adaptation of his work by the director Andy Mingo.PRAISE FOR CHUCK PALAHNIUK "e;Chuck Palahniuk's rightful place is among literary giants. He combines the masculinity of Ernest Hemingway, the satirical bent of Juvenal and the attitude of Lenny Bruce."e; -Greensboro News & Record "e;[Palahnuik] has a singular knack for coming up with inventive new ways to shock and degrade."e; -The New York Post"e;Palahniuk [follows] a long tradition of high morbidity that links recent nihilists like Will Self and Bret Easton Ellis back to Ballard and William S. Burroughs, and beyond them, to the original literary Skeletor, de Sade-in whose writing a roiling disenchantment with the world is underpinned by a vivid, pimple-squeezing self-disgust."e; -The New York Times "e;Funny, always on the edge of reality and bloodied by the profound horror of narcissism."e; -Playboy

    Victor Mancini este un fost student la Medicina care, pentru a-si putea tine in spital mama bolnava de Alzheimer, recurge la un truc extrem de ingenios: simuleaza ca se ineaca in restaurante de lux.

Obsedat sexual, incercand (in van) sa-si trateze adictia, suflet torturat care nu si-a cunoscut niciodata tatal, Victor Mancini descopera cu uimire ca ar putea avea (sau nu?) descendenta divina. Dupa cum marturiseste Palahniuk, Sufocare este cartea la a carei redactare am lucrat cel mai mult: sase luni. Spre deosebire de Fight Club (trei luni) sau Cantec de leagan (sase saptamani). Dar la aceasta perioada se adauga ani si ani de documentare si experiente care de care mai bizare. De pilda, un prieten m-a lasat sa fac disectii pe cadavre, altul mi-a povestit cum e sa lucrezi la Disneyland, un medic mi-a tinut o prelegere despre alunite si negi, folosind drept model o dansatoare exotica.

Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything. Fight Club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter and dark, anarchic genius. And it's only the beginning of his plans for revenge on a world where cancer support groups have the corner on human warmth.

    ';Are you there, Satan? It's me, Madison,' declares the whip-tongued thirteen-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk's subversive new work of fiction. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, while her parents are off touting their new projects and adopting more orphans. She dies over the holiday of a marijuana overdoseand the next thing she knows, she's in Hell. Madison shares her cell with a motley crew of young sinners that is almost too good to be true: a cheerleader, a jock, a nerd, and a punk rocker, united by fate to form the six-feet-under version of everyone's favorite detention movie. Madison and her pals trek across the Dandruff Desert and climb the treacherous Mountain of Toenail Clippings to confront Satan in his citadel. All the popcorn balls and wax lips that serve as the currency of Hell won't buy them off.This is the afterlife as only Chuck Palahniuk could imagine it: a twisted inferno where The English Patient plays on endless repeat, roaming demons devour sinners limb by limb, and the damned interrupt your dinner from their sweltering call center to hard-sell you Hell. He makes eternal torment, well, simply divine.

    She's a catwalk model who has everything: a boyfriend, a career, a loyal best friend. But a sudden motor 'accident' leaves her an 'invisible monster', so hideous that no one will acknowledge she exists.
