Adult Fiction PALAHNI
Summary: "Chuck Palahniuk, whose previous bestsellers Fight Club and Lullaby established him as one of the most original authors at work today, continues to reinvent the modern horror story and lay claim to the mantles of Ira Levin and Stephen King. After a botched suicide attempt leaves her husband Peter a vegetable, Misty Wilmot begins a ""coma diary,"" a record of her miseries on the once exclusive Waytansea Island. As Misty struggles as a waitress for the invading hordes of tourists, her dreams of becoming a famous painter seem long dead. But Misty notices strange events erupting around her. Apocalyptic messages are found in houses that Peter renovated, and Misty uncovers eerie warnings that seem meant for her. As waves of outsiders continue to overrun the island, its long-time residents become determined to get Misty painting again, as part of a nefarious plot to reclaim the island."
