Rant coming'atcha!

Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey Author Chuck Palahniuk's uncanny and unforgettable ability to vivdly expose the grotesque underbelly of the human condition has made him a JoBlo.com fave. Not that we're the sordid sort who enjoy frequenting seedy underground clubs where we kick the cathartic ass out of each other while secretly plotting to permanently destroy a corrupt capitalist society by disrupting its economy. No, we simply enjoy Palahniuk's unique brand of morbid, graphic satire. So, it goes without saying that we're looking forward to his upcoming novel "Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey". Here's a little synopsis for you to chew on:

RANT takes the form of a fictional oral history of Buster “Rant” Casey, in which an assortment of friends, enemies, admirers, detractors, and relations have their say about this evil character, who may or may not be the most efficient serial killer of our time.

Buster Casey was every small kid born in a small town, searching for real thrills in a world of video games and action/adventure movies. The high school rebel who always wins (and a childhood murderer?), Rant Casey escapes from his hometown of Middleton for the big city and becomes the leader of an urban demolition derby called Party Crashing, where on designated nights the participants recognize each other by dressing their cars with tin-can tails, “Just Married” toothpaste graffiti, and other refuse, then look for designated markings in order to stalk and crash into each other.

It’s in this violent, late-night hunting game that Casey meets three friends. And after his spectacular death, these friends gather the testimonies needed to build an oral history of his short life. Their collected anecdotes explore the charges that his saliva infected hundreds and caused a silent, urban plague of rabies…

Why are we talking about a book when this is a movie site, you may be asking? Well, it wouldn't kill ya to read a book every once in a while, alright? But mostly because Palahniuk is one bad ass mofo. We'll have a review of the novel in the next few weeks. It's scheduled for release May 1st.

Extra Tidbit: The color cornflower blue and the city of Missoula, Montana, are said to appear in all of Palahniuk's books.
