From the Publisher:
Madison Spencer, the liveliest, snarkiest dead girl in the universe, continues the adventures in the afterlife begun in Damned. Having somewhat reluctantly escaped from Hell, she now wanders the Purgatory that is Earth as a ghostly spirit, seeking her do-gooding celebrity parents, fighting the malign control of Satan, recounting the disgracefully funny (to us, anyway) encounter with her grandfather in a fetid highway rest stop in upstate New York when she . . . oh, never mind, and climaxing in a rendezvous with destiny on the new, totally plastic continent in the Pacific called, not at all accidentally, Madlantis.
Dante Aligheri, watch your back, Chuck Palahniuk is gaining on you.
Chuck Palahniuk (pronounced PAULA-nik) is a writer of disturbing novels and short stories that frequently expose the unpleasant underbelly of modern society and the human psyche. Palahniuk was born in Washington State and still lives in the Pacific Northwest. He went to the University of Oregon where he received his B.A. in journalism. After a short stint as a journalist, Palahniuk became an assembly-line mechanic for Freightliner. During this time he attended a writing workshop led by Tom Spanbauer, a disciple of Gordon Lish's minimalist approach to fiction writing, and a powerful influence on Palahniuk's literary style and philosophy. After his novel INVISIBLE MONSTERS was rejected for being too disturbing (it was later published), Palahniuk wrote the even more disturbing FIGHT CLUB, based in part on his experiences as a member of the Cacophony Society, a loose-knit organization specializing in pranks and rowdiness. After its publication FIGHT CLUB was made into a film by David Fincher, starring Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, and Helena Bonham Carter. The film created a devoted cult following for Palahniuk, and his subsequent novels have all achieved mainstream commercial success. Though occasionally accused of using shock value and sexism in his work, Palahniuk's sick and twisted tales continue to fascinate his mostly young audience, and have drawn comparisons to Irvine Welsh and Bret Easton Ellis.
