Product description

Review

Praise for Beautiful You

"Sex is on the mind of author Chuck Palahniuk, and it is taken to extremes and tweaked to outrageous lengths in his latest novel, Beautiful You. 50 Shades of Grey this isn't. In fact, the book is almost a middle finger to "mommy porn" and the popularity of modern erotica -- while also being a smart, satirical take on misogyny, fame, the fashion industry, self-help and science... Palahniuk's graphic storytelling is bound to ruffle puritanical feathers--which is probably part of his point--but it's essential to the societal takedown. Nothing is sacred and everything gets torched, from pop culture (at one point vampire novels are used as thrown weapons, an obvious Twilight reference) to celebrity."
--USA Today

"[Palahniuk's] legion of fans will adore all its excesses.... [G]reat fun..."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"The author of Fight Club offers barbed social satire that turns Aristophanes' Lysistrata sideways; giving readers something to talk about."
--Library Journal

"Palahniuk continues to push limits in this satire of sex and consumerism... His cheeky wit is at its best in this grotesque novel; his semi-erotic writing is efficacious and there are some downright beautiful scenes."
--Publishers Weekly

..".[A] subtle and empathic piece of work."
--Kirkus Reviews
