Tender Branson-last surviving member of the Creedish Death Cult-is dictating his life story into Flight 2039's recorder. 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 to an ultra-buffed, steroid- and collagen-packed media messiah. Unpredictable and unforgettable, Survivor is 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.

A turbo-charged, deliciously manic satire of contemporary American life. -- Newsday
Maniacally comic. -- Esquire
A dead-on sendup of the media, celebrity and pop culture. -- Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Maybe our generation has found its Don DeLillo. -- Bret Easton Ellis
