Whoever said truth is stranger than fiction has never read Chuck Palahniuk. Having carved out a cult following with surreal stunners like Fight Club and Choke, Palahniuk is a modern master when it comes to blurring the lines between fantasy and reality. Now, like that dream you just can’t shake, Palahniuk’s 1999 novel Invisible Monsters is back with a vengeance. Remixed with new material and design, it reads like a road memoir of pills, betrayal, dreams and plastic surgery. Join us as Palahniuk dives into a world where self transcends appearance and everyone discovers inner monsters.
