Short Synopsis
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.

Full Synopsis
Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

"Palahniuk compassionately and candidly examines the flesh-on-film industry." ---Publishers Weekly

""The notorious novelist's excursion into the world of porn might well be his most moralistic work to date." ---Kirkus

"Striking characters, sharp parody, and a tight plot.... Highly recommended for mature [audiences]." ---Library Journal

"Only Palahniuk would devise this off-putting premise; only he, too, could manage to build it into an entertaining and suspenseful dark comedy." ---Booklist

"[Palahniuk] does a masterful job of putting all of our excesses, phobias and neuroses on full display." ---San Francisco Chronicle

"[Todd] McLaren's gritty voice adds the needed edge to this seedy but interesting novel." ---Publishers Weekly Audio Review
