Recent Work By Chuck Palahniuk

Act I, Scene Two

 

If you’ll permit me to break the fourth wall, my name is Hazie Coogan.

My vocation is not that of a paid companion, nor am I a professional housekeeper.  It is my role as an old woman to scrub the same pots and pans I scrubbed as a young one –- I’ve made my peace with that fact –- and while she has never once touched them, those pots and pans have always belonged to the majestic, the glorious film actress, Miss Katherine Kenton.
