Publisher's Summary

Tender Branson, the last surviving member of the so-called Creedish Death Cult, is dictating his life story into the flight 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, he 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. This is author Chuck Palahniuk at his deadpan peak, a mesmerizing, unnerving, and hilarious satire on the wages of fame and the bedrock lunacy of the modern world.


What the Critics Say

Good and dark

I was unfamiliar with this author (apart from the film of Fight Club) but I will definatly be exploring more of his work. It is a dark novel and the author has a really good descriptive way about him. He is able to describe really mundane things and fill them with meaning. This book also contains some good cleaning tips in the course of telling his story, strange I know but you will have to listen to see what I mean. The characters are really well formed and fit perfectly into their roles.

The narration is quite dry indeed the narrator seems to inject anti drama to the character of Tender, but the story and the pace of text compliments the narrators style really well.

I really enjoyed this book although I appricate it is not everyones cup of tea.
