Pressestimmen"Palahniuk's grotesque, exaggerated portrait of American society certainly isn't pretty, but it grips like a vice all the same" The Times "A wonderful writer with a raw take on modern woes" The Face "Mining a dark vein opened by Bret Easton Ellis and George Saunders, Palahniuk specialises in producing nightmarish visions of American society that manage to be both repugnant and hilarious - the reckless brilliance of his imagination keeps you turning the pages" Literary Review "A raw and vital book, punctuated with outrageous, off-the-wall moments" New York Times "The pungent imagery, the witty twists, the chunky rhythms are great" Financial Times 20020614
