Essential for Palahniuk fans as well as writers wanting to learn from a seasoned pro. He gives you behind-the-scenes insight into his infamous story, Guts, his eventful book tours, and, of course, Fight Club. He also tells you how to write a damn good story, he should know. You don't have to take his word as God but you are guaranteed, regardless, to be entertained.

This uniquely written novel tells the story of the author's journey to write a novel that is due to her publisher. It takes place in a 2yr span leading up to the 2016 election and birth of her child. It's honest, raw and made me miss NYC terribly.
