Description
Stories you'll never forget just try from literature's favorite transgressive author
Representing work that spans several years, "Make Something Up"is a compilation of 21 stories and one novella (some previously published, some not) that will disturb and delight.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." And in other stories, 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.
Funny, caustic, bizarre, poignant; these stories represent everything readers have come to love and expect from Chuck Palahniuk.
