Stranger Than Ficiton is a collection of Palahniuk's nonfiction writing, both essays and journalistic articles, that show there's enough strangeness in the real world to rival anything people can dream up.

These articles fall into two categories, each interesting for their own reasons. The first category are the "journalism" articles where Palahniuk learns about and covers some person or event (be it Marilyn Manson or the Rock Creek Lodge Testicle Festival). Ranging from bizarre to fascinating (most often somewhere in between), these stories are wonderful examples of the variety of the human spirit. The next category of stories are the ones more personal to Chuck Palahiuk. These will appeal to any fan of his work, as they let you into his world and his inspirations. All the stories are interesting in their own right, and written in Palahniuk's unique style. Worth it for a quick read.
