Haunted

coverHaunted
Chuck Palahniuk

A group of hopeful writers respond to an add: “Writer’s retreat! 3 months away from everything – create your masterpiece free from the world’s distractions”. What could go wrong?

The book is a collection of short stories and poems about those hopeful writers, all woven together by the thread of the events that happen in the retreat — and in the ones that came before. It’s definitely haunting; some of the stories can’t be described in any other way. If you’re just a bit squeamish, some of them will hit you almost physically. I know I won’t ever try to block any kind of suction device with any part of my body.

But, if you’ve ever read anything by Chuck Palahniuk (or if you’ve seen Fight Club), you already know what to expect.
