"Death, like life, is what you make out of it." So says Madison, the whip-tongued 11-year-old narrator of Damned. Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas while her parents are off touting their new film projects and adopting more orphans. Over the holidays she dies of a marijuana overdose--and the next thing she knows, she's in Hell.

This is the afterlife as only Chuck Palahniuk could imagine it: a twisted inferno inspired by both the most extreme and mundane of human evils, where The English Patient plays on repeat and roaming demons devour sinners limb by limb.

With the help of Archer, Babette, Leonard, and Patterson, she learns to navigate Hell--and discovers that she'd rather be mortal and deluded and stupid with those she loves than perfect and alone.

Praise for Chuck Palahniuk
"[Palahniuk] throws his punches, but he's been working on his technique and they hit you in new and different ways that will make you scowl and laugh and cringe."
