Chuck Palahniuk Reading — Thursday May 29th —

25 May

‘Fight Club’ is a classic and his wide-array of similarly darkly-humored novels marks Mr. Chuck’s off-putting, important role in the literary world over the last decade. Love him or hate him, come hear this twisted author read from his new novel, Snuff, this coming Thursday.

From the master of literary mayhem and provocation, a full-frontal Triple X novel that goes where no American work of fiction has gone before…. Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet under-acknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?
