Invisible Monsters
Chuck Palahniuk

Fiction - Published: 1/Jul/2003 - ISBN: 9780099285441

She's a fashion model who has everything: a boyfriend, a career, a loyal best friend. But when a sudden freeway 'accident' leaves her disfigured and incapable of speech, she goes from being the beautiful centre of attention to being an invisible monster, so hideous that no one will acknowledge she exists. Enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from being a real woman, who will teach her that reinventing yourself means erasing your past and making up something better. And that salvation lies in the last places you'll ever want to look. In this hilarious and daringly unpredictable novel, the narrator must exact revenge on Evie, her best and fellow model; kidnap Manus, her two-timing ex-boyfriend; and hit the road with Brandy in search of a brand-new past, present and future. Changing names and stories in every city, they catapult toward a final confrontation with a rifle-toting Evie - by which time we will have learnt that loving and being loved are not mutually exclusive, and that nothing, on the surface, is ever quite what it seems.
