Bait: Off-Colour Stories for You to Colour

Regular price $31.99

New York Times bestselling novelist Chuck Palahniuk presents Bait: Off-Colour Stories for You to Colour, his first ever colouring book for adults. Bait is both the colouring book debut and the second short story collection for Palahniuk, author of Lullaby and Fight Club. The 8.5 x 11 inch hardcover album contains eight bizarre tales, illustrated in detailed black and white by Joëlle Jones (Lady Killer), Lee Bermejo (The Suiciders), Duncan Fegredo (Hellboy), and more. Each story is paired with pieces of colorable original art, nearly 50 in all!

Palahniuk invites readers to collaborate on this unprecedented hardcover edition: "Maybe between your colours, the artists' designs, and my stories we can create something that endures. Something worth keeping. Let's create a well-bound book that can sit on any shelf and be available for a new generation to discover and enjoy."

Palahniuk's short stories are provocative and not for the faint of heart. (His public readings are notorious for making audience members pass out.) Kirkus Reviews described Palahniuk's 2015 short story collection Make Something Up: Stories You Can't Unread as "Pathos and panic and penitence from one of the darkest and most singular minds in contemporary American lit."

Bait continues in that vein with stories about:
A passenger on the Titanic who finds a surgical solution to the obstacle of "women and children first". A Hollywood star whose fading brand faces a viral (and scatological) internet campaign. An animal psychic who coaxes a statement from a fish that witnessed a political assassination. Increasingly terrible birthday gifts that place a girl at the center of an extinction-level event.

Palahniuk invites readers to collaborate on this unprecedented hardcover edition: "Maybe between your colours, the artists' designs, and my stories we can create something that endures.

Something worth keeping.

Let's create a well-bound book that can sit on any shelf and be available for a new generation to discover and enjoy."
