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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Brilliantly satiric and savagely funny.” San Francisco Chronicle
“A turbo-charged, deliciously manic satire of contemporary American life.” Newsday
“Mordant…One’s sympathy for the improbably doomed hero is fully engaged.” New Yorker
“Convoluted, maniacally comic, partaking deeply of the America that streams toward us in the dead of the night from the cable channels—that place of outrageous expectation, slavish idolatry, fanatic consumerism, and mind-stopping banality.” Esquire
“Survivor is the perfect comment on our apocalypse-fixated times.” Spin
“Impressive…a wryly mannered commentary on the excesses of pop culture…Palahniuk’s DeLilloesque cultural witticisms and his satirical take on the culture of instant celebrity invest the narrative with a dark humor.” Publishers Weekly
“This dark yet comical story, like all of Chuck Palahniuk’s books, provides rich and amusing social commentary…Garcia excels in the straight, almost emotionless delivery he uses for some of the story’s funniest lines.” AudioFile
