"Haunted" is on one level a satire of reality television--"The Real World" meets "Alive." It draws from a great literary tradition--"The Canterbury Tales," "The Decameron," the English storytellers in the Villa Diodati who produced, among other works, "Frankenstein"--to tell an utterly contemporary tale of people desperate that their story be told at any cost. Appallingly entertaining, "Haunted" is Chuck Palahniuk at his finest--which means his most extreme and his most provocative.
More than 150 writers from 40 events will gather in New York City for PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, April 28 – May 4, 2014.

Join us for a wide range of events, including debates, one-on-one conversations, participatory workshops and performances in venues throughout the city. Use the code PEN14 (use PEN2014 for events at The Public Theater) and receive a 20 percent discount on most events. www.worldvoicesfestival.org
