Make Something Up (Short Story Collection) – Chuck Palahniuk

You can draw a line from Raymond Carver to Palahniuk taking a well-worth-it detour via George Saunders and have a pretty fair take on great American storytelling. Despite having published a number of individual short stories in various publications over the years, this is Palahniuk’s first collection and is worth checking out. “Zombie’ is typical of the whimsical imagination that litters the collection and the never-too-far-from-the-surface darkly tinged humour.
