  • ""Hallo, Mr. Satan, hier spricht Madison." Das sind Madisons erste Worte in ihrem neuen Zuhause - der Hölle. Wie sie dahin gekommen ist? Ihre Eltern sind nicht ganz unschuldig daran. Ihre Mutter, eine selbstverliebte Schauspielerin, und ihr Vater, ein geldverliebter Millionär, lassen ihre Tochter über Weihnachten in einem Schweizer Internat zurück, während sie selbst weitere Waisen adoptieren. Madison katapultiert sich derweil mittels einer Überdosis Marihuana ins Jenseits. Dort trifft sie unter anderem auf einen Cheerleader, eine Sportskanone, einen Aussenseiter und einen Punk. Gemeinsam machen sie sich auf den Weg, Satan zur Rede zu stellen, aber so leicht können sie der Hölle nicht entkommen ... Der amerikanische Autor Chuck Palahniuk, geboren 1962, träumte lange davon, Schriftsteller zu werden. Doch erst ein persönlicher Einschnitt in seinem Leben gab ihm schliesslich den Impuls, seinen Traum zu verwirklichen. Seit seinem Überraschungserfolg "Fight Club" geniesst Palahniuk nicht nur bei zahllosen Lesern Kultstatus, er hat sich mit seinen folgenden Romanen auch in die Riege amerikanischer Bestsellerautoren geschrieben. Chuck Palahniuk lebt in Portland, Oregon."

  • ""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. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, while her parents are off touting their new projects and adopting more orphans. 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."

  • "Hija de una estrella de cine narcisista y de un billonario, Madison es abandonada en un internado suizo durante las Navidades mientras sus padres se dedican a sus nuevos proyectos y a adoptar huerfanitos. Madison muere entonces por una sobredosis y lo siguiente que sabe es que está en el infierno rodeada de un variopinto grupo de jóvenes pecadores más que atractivos: una animadora, un deportista, un nerd y un punkrocker. Todos unidos por el destino para crear una versión Palahniuk de A dos metros bajo tierra. Madison y sus colegas tendrán que atravesar el Desierto de Dandruff y cruzar el Valle de los Pañales de Usar y Tirar para enfrentarse a Satán en su ciudadela. Solo Palahniuk podría haberse imaginado un infierno como éste, un lugar donde El paciente inglés se proyecta sin parar y donde una caterva de demonios ambulantes devoran pecadores miembro a miembro y donde los condenados te interrumpen durante la siesta desde su caluroso call center para tratar de venderte el infierno..."
