About this item
Shock novelist and scathingly satiric social commentator Chuck Palahniuk (FIGHT CLUB) gives his twisted take on the oral biography, using multiple first-person accounts to tell the short and brutish life story of Buster "Rant" Casey, a serial killing teenager who intentionally contracts rabies in order to spread the disease. Set in a dystopic future, laced with dark religious overtones, and filled with amphetamine-high humor, RANT will delight Palahniuk's fans and disturb those new to his gleefully bleak vision.
Buster “Rant” Casey just may be the most efficient serial killer of our time. A high school rebel, Rant Casey escapes from his small town home for the big city where he becomes the leader of an urban demolition derby called Party Crashing. Rant Casey will die a spectacular highway death, after which his friends gather the testimony needed to build an oral history of his short, violent life. With hilarity, horror, and blazing insight, Rant is a mind-bending vision of the future, as only Chuck Palahniuk could ever imagine.
