BeschreibungTakes the form of a 'coma diary' kept by one Misty Wilmot as her husband lies senseless in hospital after a suicide attempt. Once, she was an art student dreaming of creativity and freedom; now, after marrying Peter at art school and being brought back to Waytansea Island, she's been reduced to the condition of a resort hotel maid.

Pressestimmen"His most scarily nihilistic and resonant book since Fight Club" Independent on Sunday "Like a noxious Douglas Coupland, Palahniuk charts new-felt and totally contemporary categories of despair" -- Ali Smith Guardian "A nihilistic masterpiece" NME "Part Rosemary's Baby, part The Wicker Man... The shocks are shocking and the twists nice and taut" Time Out "A truly terrifying horror story with some interestingly radical underpinnings" I-D
