Description:

Chuck Palahniuk's outrageous and startling debut novel that exploded American literature and spawned a movement.

I set my watch two hours earlier or three hours later, Pacific, Mountain, Central, or Eastern time; lose an hour, gain an hour. This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time.
