Product description

She's a fashion model who has everything: a boyfriend, a career, a loyal best friend. But when a sudden freeway "accident" leaves her disfigured and incapable of speech, she goes from being the beautiful center of attention to being an invisible monster, so hideous that no one will acknowledge that she exists. Enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from becoming a real woman, who will teach her that reinventing yourself means erasing your past and making up something better. And that salvation hides in the last places you'll ever want to look.

Review quote

"Chuck Palahniuk's stories don't unfold. They hurtle headlong, changing lanes in threes and banging off the guard rails of modern fiction. This time he has really done it. ?Invisible Monsters? makes... ?Fight Club?... seem like a leisurely buggy ride." -- James Sullivan "A harrowing, perverse, laugh-aloud funny rocket ride of catastrophes... Gutsy, terse, and cunning, ?Invisible Monsters ?may emerge as Palahniuk's strongest book." -- Greg Berkman "[A] stylish, bitchy beach read." -- Emily Jenkins "?Invisible Monsters could scare the tights off the ratings board... A wildly plotted, quick-read showcase of his hip, perverse humor and dark imagination." -- Steve Sullivan "Palahniuk is either crazy or genius-his wildly inventive plotlines are from so far left field they might as well be lobbed from outer space; his language is quick and clever and impossibly honest and nasty (serrated, not graphic); his style-this time jumping through logical time like a nervous whippet-breaks all rules and conventions, like he never even learned them... Invisible Monsters ?is a soap opera wrapped in a mystery; an enigma swaddled in a Bret Easton Ellis nightmare." "Fast-paced... Everyone wants to be someone else, and in this hilarious book, they get the chance." -- Ted Loos
