Gerald Howard’s Letter to the NY Times Editor

gerald-howards-letter-to-the-ny-times-editor“. . .As for Palahniuk’s novels, 11 of which I have edited and published, all of them have made me laugh so hard that I always keep my asthma inhaler at the ready as I edit them. Survivor, his unnerving pre-9/11 airliner hijacking novel, is one of my very favorites, and his latest book — the Judy Blume-meets-Dante-meets-“The Breakfast Club” mash-up Damned — is, to repurpose Almond’s final words, enthralling and disgusting (in a good way, of course).” [. . .]    –Gerald Howard, The New York Times, October 12, 2012
