Pressestimmen"Hypnotic, pitiless and told brilliantly" -- Bret Easton Ellis "An outrageously suspenseful apocalyptic comedy of horrors...with acid clarity...Fight Club only achieves something only terrifying books do - it tells us: this is how we live now. Maybe our generation has finally found its Don DeLillo" Bret Easton Ellis "Like a noxious Doug Coupland, Palahiuk charts new-felt and totally contemporary categories of despair" -- Ali Smith Guardian "An immensely skillful writer" Daily Telegraph "Short, sharp and savage, this haunting and strikingly original American urban nightmare is the most impressive US fiction debut I can remember in years" Glasgow Herald
