Chuck Palahniuk: Adult Bedtime Stories
Best known for his shocking, violent, bleakly funny 1996 debut novel Fight Club, which spawned one of the great cult movies of the ’90s, Chuck Palahniuk is one of the modern masters of the macabre, reliably churning stomachs with each new release. This month he released his latest novel, Doomed, the second in a trilogy following dead teenager Madison Spencer as she navigates the afterlife, but tonight’s appearance won’t be a typical book reading. Instead, Palahniuk has framed the event as a program of “Adult Bedtime Stories.” Attendees are encouraged to wear pajamas (and even bring a teddy bear, if they wish) for a night that will include trivia, games and giveaways (most likely of the disturbing variety).
