PAPERBACK

May 1, 2018

Tender Branson―last surviving member of the Creedish Death Cult―is dictating his life story into the recorder of Flight 2039, cruising on autopilot at 39,000 feet somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. He is all alone in the airplane, which will crash shortly into the vast Australian outback. But before it does, Branson will unfold the tale of his journey from an obedient Creedish child and humble domestic servant to an ultra-buffed, steroid- and collagen-packed media messiah.

Editorial Reviews

“A turbo-charged, deliciously manic satire of contemporary American life. [Palahniuk] rearranges Vonnegut’s sly humor, DeLillo’s mordant social analysis and Pynchon’s antic surrealism (or is it R. Crumb’s) into a gleaming puzzle palace all his own.”

– Newsday

“Convoluted, maniacally comic, partaking deeply of the America that streams towards us in the dead of night from the cable channels―that place of outrageous expectation, slavish idolatry, fanatic consumerism, and mind-stopping banality.” - Esquire

– Esquire

“Impressive…Palahniuk’s DeLilloesque cultural witticisms and his satirical take on the culture of instant celebrity invest the narrative with a dark humor.”
