Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Maybe our generation has found its Don Delillo.” Bret Easton Ellis
“Drafting Invisible Monsters in 1991, Palahniuk structured it like the issues of Vogue he loved reading at the laundromat, with disorienting jumps that forced the reader to turn lots of pages in order to follow the story to its conclusion. It was a perfect format for a time-shifting road-trip narrative that drags conventional notions of fashion, beauty, self-image behind the car.” Booklist (starred review)
“Palahniuk’s tale of a fashion model who loses everything when she is badly disfigured in a drive-by shooting gets a makeover here, featuring new chapters, new scenes, and special design elements. It’s being billed as a ‘director’s cut,’ which Palahniuk fans will definitely want.” Library Journal
“A nice collector’s item for Palahniuk’s cult.” Kirkus Reviews
