Good news for you canucks! Chuck is taking a trip north of the border to British Columbia for two big reading events for Damned. Here's the scoop from his Canadian publishers:
Courtesy of Random House, comes the official synopsis of Chuck Palahniuk's upcoming novel Damned. What little we know about the book previously, told us that a young girl dies and goes to hell, and that Chuck was very influenced by the Young Adult novels of Judy Blume, while writing it. Now, we have this official synopsis that was recently posted at RandomHouse.com:
Chuck's next novel, Damned, will be released by Random House on September 6, 2011! The release date just popped up on Amazon last week. There is no pre-order or cover art yet, but you can keep an eye on things at this link. For those of you who don't know anything yet about this upcoming novel, here's a quick summary from Chuck that he gave during a recent interview with Suicide Girls:
So Damned is about an eleven-year old girl who wakes up basically and finds that she is in hell and that she's dead, and that she's going to be eleven-years old and dead in hell for the rest of eternity. So she has to, number one, make friends and figure out how hell works and make the best of it. But she's also got to figure out why she's in hell and how she died, and then ultimately whether or not she wants to petition to go to heaven, to try and uncover some mistake that might have been made. So it's about an eleven-year old, a very optimistic, cheerful, pushy little girl who finds herself in hell.
