This event was GREAT fun! The interviewer, Tim Barbash, asked some good questions & was definitely up to the task of doing this interview. Chuck Palahniuk being who he is, we expected that he might be interesting & a little "out there" (but in a good way). Even with that expectation we were not prepared for all of the hilarity & his antics. He brought 50 stuffed Tigers that he passed out as rewards for audience members correctly answering trivia questions about his books. CP's answers to questions were thoughtful and yet spiced with the oddities and ironies that make him such a readable and outstanding author. We had a fantastic time!

Injected with new material and special design elements, Invisible Monsters Remix fulfills Chuck Palahniuk’s original vision for his 1999 novel, turning a daring satire on beauty and the fashion industry into an even more wildly unique reading experience. Palahniuk’s fashion-model protagonist has it all—boyfriend, career, loyal best friend—until an accident destroys her face, her ability to speak, and her self-esteem. Enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from becoming a bona-fide woman. Laced in are new chapters of memoir and further scenes with the book’s characters. Readers will jump between chapters, reread the book to understand the dissolve between fiction and fact, and decipher the playful book design, embarking on a ride they’ll never forget.
