Chuck Palahniuk is one of the most innovative and daring writers of our generation. His new release, INVISIBLE MONSTERS REMIX, is the first book that truly realizes the complexity and depth of Palahniuk’s vision.
Loaded with new material and special design elements, INVISIBLE MONSTERS REMIX is a “director’s cut” that fulfills the author’s original vision for his 1999 novel. Readers will find themselves jumping between chapters, holding the book to a mirror to read the text, rereading the book to understand the elusive dissolve between fiction and fact, and deciphering the playful book design as they embark on a ride they'll never forget.
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, who is one operation away from becoming a bona-fide woman. Seamlessly laced into the original text are new chapters of memoir and further enriching scenes with the book's characters. This elaborate new format turns an already daring satire on beauty and the fashion industry into an even more wildly unique and immersive reading experience.
Chuck Palahniuk is the author of Fight Club, which was made into a movie directed by David Fincher, as well as Survivor, Damned, and Tell-All, among other books. He lives in Washington State.
