From Chuck Palahniuk, the master of literary mayhem and provocation, a full-frontal Triple X novel that goes where no American work of fiction has gone before.

The Washington Post - Lily Burana

If his sentences are occasionally rough-hewn and his endings a bit too fantastical, so be it. No other contemporary writer makes raging against the machine so compulsively readable…To the last page, Snuff is a moralistic work, but not in the way of tedious, partisan bickering about the dangers of porn. Snuff is, instead, a meditation on immortality, ambition, the lure of risk, the need for stability and, ultimately, on leaving a legacy. The question isn't why Palahniuk would take on such an off-putting subject, but rather, what took him so long. Chuck and porn. Porn and Chuck—the two go together like fists and brass knuckles, moth and flame: a fatalistic coupling that happens to be, also, a perfect match.
