  • ""Are you there, Satan? It's me, Madison, " declares the whip-tongued thirteen-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk's subversive new work of fiction.

She dies over the holiday of a marijuana overdose--and the next thing she knows, she's in Hell. Madison shares her cell with a motley crew of young sinners that is almost too good to be true: a cheerleader, a jock, a nerd, and a punk rocker, united by fate to form the six-feet-under version of everyone's favorite detention movie. Madison and her pals trek across the Dandruff Desert and climb the treacherous Mountain of Toenail Clippings to confront Satan in his citadel. All the popcorn balls and wax lips that serve as the currency of Hell won't buy them off.--Résumé de l'éditeur."
  • "Thirteen year old Madison has problems: she is overweight, ignored by her movie star parents, and in love with her adopted brother. She is also dead. But not just dead. Madison is in Hell. This book takes us on Madison's journey through Hell, as she navigates the Hillocks of Discarded Nail Pairings and the River of Vomit, meeting everyone from Charles Darwin to Marilyn Monroe, with a colorful cast of characters to determine why she is really there, and whether she will be damned for eternity. In this book, Hell really does exist, as a place where your only career choice is telemarketer, the currency is Halloween candy, and the in-flight movie is always The English Patient, never The Breakfast Club. With witty, laugh-out-loud prose, and a twist like only Palahniuk can write, this dark comedic novel is sure to be ranked among his best."
