Publisher Description

BEAUTIFUL YOU is Palahniuk's much-anticipated satire of the emerging erotic thriller genre, a mash-up of mommy porn and chick lit ala Sex and the City, and fantasy lit ala Clan of the Cave Bear. Imagine if Ira Levin had a baby with Jean Auel.

  • “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 to celebrity.”

    - USA Today
  • “Overflowing with outrageous humor and satirical intent, this provocative escapade promises to arouse passions of every variety.”

    - Barnes&, editorial review
  • “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
  • “The author of Fight Club offers barbed social satire that turns Aristophanes’ Lysistrata sideways, giving readers something to talk about.”

    - Library Journal
  • “Less macho than most of Palahniuk’s work, this Cinderella-with-sex-toys parable is the transgressive writer’s attempt at a feminist (or post-feminist) novel…By Palahniuk’s standards, this is actually a subtle and empathic piece of work.”

    - Kirkus Reviews
  • “Carol Monda’s precise performance keeps the listener from figuring out too soon that this is a satire—a very weird satire. She sounds so serious, so professional, even as the story gets more and more absurd, that some listeners may not believe this nonsense is anything more than a fever dream.”
