Praise for Bait: Off-Color Stories for You to Color "The conceit is a blast. Ingenious...Palahniuk likes to involve his readers, and maybe even have them be co-conspirators. I loved this book. It's smart in a new way that deserves to be recognized. Congratulations once again to Palahniuk for showing us a new way to do things...and to make us involved."--FORCES OF GEEK "Chuck Palahniuk is pushing boundaries again."--COMICBOOK.COM.
