Read full description of the books Cântec de leagăn:Cintec de leagan este un thriller de un umor grotesc si o satira nemiloasa la adresa unei lumi ultramediatizate, in care dictonul „Cunoasterea inseamna putere” capata sensuri extreme.
Carl Streator este un reporter insarcinat sa investigheze cazul unor bebelusi victime ale sindromului mortii subite. Nu dupa mult timp, el descopera un tulburator element comun: inaintea mortii, fiecarui bebelus i s-a citit aceeasi poezie. Cercetarile ii scot in cale o femeie cu puteri misterioase, Helen Hoover Boyle, asasin telepatic si agent imobiliar care si-a facut o afacere din vinzarea de case bintuite. Helen ii confirma banuiala ca poezia respectiva este, de fapt, un stravechi cintec de leagan african si o formula magica mortala care actioneaza asupra oricui. Acum Streator se vede inzestrat cu o arma teribila, de care nu va ezita sa se foloseasca.
Read information about the authorWritten in stolen moments under truck chassis and on park benches to a soundtrack of The Downward Spiral and Pablo Honey, Fight Club came into existence. The adaptation of Fight Club was a flop at the box office, but achieved cult status on DVD. The film’s popularity drove sales of the novel. Chuck put out two novels in 1999, Survivor and Invisible Monsters. Choke, published in 2001, became Chuck’s first New York Times bestseller. Chuck’s work has always been infused with personal experience, and his next novel, Lullaby, was no exception. Chuck credits writing Lullaby with helping him cope with the tragic death of his father. Diary and the non-fiction guide to Portland, Fugitives and Refugees, were released in 2003. While on the road in support of Diary, Chuck began reading a short story entitled 'Guts,' which would eventually become part of the novel Haunted.
In the years that followed, he continued to write, publishing the bestselling Rant, Snuff, Pygmy, Tell-All, a 'remix' of Invisible Monsters, Damned, and most recently, Doomed.
Chuck also enjoys giving back to his fans, and teaching the art of storytelling has been an important part of that. In 2004, Chuck began submitting essays to ChuckPalahniuk.net on the craft of writing. These were 'How To' pieces, straight out of Chuck's personal bag of tricks, based on the tenants of minimalism he learned from Tom Spanbauer. Every month, a “Homework Assignment” would accompany the lesson, so Workshop members could apply what they had learned. (all 36 of these essays can currently be found on The Cult's sister-site, LitReactor.com).
Then, in 2009, Chuck increased his involvement by committing to read and review a selection of fan-written stories each month. The best stories are currently set to be published in Burnt Tongues, a forthcoming anthology, with an introduction written by Chuck himself.
His next novel, Beautiful You, is due out in October 2014.
