Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Misty Wilmot has had it. Once a promising young artist, she's now stuck on an island ruined by tourism, drinking too much and working as a waitress in a hotel. Her husband, a contractor, is in a coma after a suicide attempt, but that doesn't stop his clients from threatening Misty with lawsuits over a series of vile messages they've found on the walls of houses he remodeled.

Suddenly, though, Misty finds her artistic talent returning as she begins a period of compulsive painting. Inspired but confused by this burst of creativity, she soon finds herself a pawn in a larger conspiracy that threatens to cost hundreds of lives. What unfolds is a dark, hilarious story from America's most inventive nihilist, and Palahniuk's most impressive work to date.

Review:

"[Palahniuk's] catchy, jarring prose, cryptic pronouncements and baroque flights of imagination are instantly recognizable, and...this twisted tale [is] one of his most memorable works to date." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[R]emarkable....Palahniuk restrains his more comic voice to deliver moving passages on inspiration, art, and suffering as a driving force....A loose-limbed nightmare both vaporous and all-enveloping: awe-inspiring." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"This is Palahniuk at the height of his style....Diary may be trying to be too many things at once, but when it's on, it's on, and it could be Chuck Palahniuk's most ambitious novel to date, certainly the most ambitious since Fight Club." Marc Nesbitt, The Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Though absurd and darkly humorous at times, Diary is no joke. Palahniuk has had great success with dangerously madcap characters and situations. This novel taps a similarly wild vein..." Douglas Levin, The Oregonian
