"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.
