EXCLUSIVE: Chuck Palahniuk's Short Story Collection 'Make Something Up' to Feature Brand New Tyler Durden Story
Editor's Note: the story "Excursion" has been retitled to "Expedition"
Good news, Chuckees and Chuckettes! Those of you waiting on more info about the transgressive master's latest release are about to have their patience rewarded. This is straight from Chuck's publicist at Doubleday, and contains quite a few tasty tidbits.
As you may have heard, the book is called Make Something Up: Stories You Can't Unread, and it represents Chuck's first true short story collection (Haunted technically being a novel made up of short stories connected by a through-line). The release date is May 26, and you can preorder on Amazon now (link below).
But what you may NOT have heard—and this is the really exciting bit, here—is that it will feature a brand new story starring the one and only Tyler Durden, set in the his pre-Fight Club days. Between this and the upcoming sequel comic from Dark Horse, Fight Club fans have a lot to look forward to. Check it out:
Representing work that spans several years, Make Something Up is a compilation of 21 stories and one novella (some previously published, some not) that will disturb and delight. The absurdity of both life and death are on full display; in "Zombies," the best and brightest of a high school prep school become tragically addicted to the latest drug craze: electric shocks from cardiac defibrillators. In "Knock, Knock," a son hopes to tell one last off-color joke to a father in his final moments, while in "Tunnel of Love," a massage therapist runs the curious practice of providing 'relief' to dying clients. And in "Excursion," fans will be thrilled to find to see a side of Tyler Durden never seen before in a precursor story to Fight Club.
