Publication Details Publisher: Misty was raised in a trailer park in Tecumseh Lake, Georgia by her hippie mother. She is an aspiring artist and attends art school where she eventually meets and begins going out with Peter Wilmot.
Peter does everything in his power to get her pregnant, and they eventually go live with his family on Waytansea Island after his father, Harrow Wilmot, dies. Misty puts off her artistic aspirations to raise Tabitha. Misty eventually discovers that she is the reincarnation of past artists, including Maura Kincaid and Constance Burton. He is found in the family car by Misty, supposedly having attempted suicide.
It eventually turns out that he was the victim of attempted murder by his own father, whom Misty had thought was dead and who was trying to stop him from spoiling the islanders' plan to use Misty's artwork to get rich. The murder attempt was a failure, and Peter now lies comatose in a hospital bed.
She plays the part of a loving child throughout most of the story, eventually faking her death so as to cause her mother emotional pain which would help Misty to create art.
After it is revealed to Misty that Tabitha is still alive, she learns that Tabitha smokes, flirts with boys, and is not as loving, sweet, or innocent a child as she'd previously thought. Misty is often annoyed by her, whether it's the way she wastes Misty's money, or the way she's influencing Tabitha.
Grace is often found with a diary, which it turns out is not of Grace's writings, but rather that of a dead artist from a century back by the name of Constance Burton.
Grace eventually dies in a fire in the hotel along with more than a hundred other persons on the night of the unveiling of Misty's artwork. Misty uses him to judge in advance what Peter will eventually look like. Although Misty loved him, throughout most of the book, Misty believes he is dead, as that is what Peter, Grace, and the doctor have all told her despite none of them telling her the same thing as his cause-of-death.
Toward the end of the book, it is discovered that Harrow is actually alive, and that his death has been faked. But he dies not long after, along with Grace in the burning hotel. Angel Delaporte Angel is a wealthy man who comes to live on the island. He is quite interested in graphology , and he and Misty go around to the various houses in which Peter has done construction work to see what sort of messages Peter has painted on the walls of these houses.
It is eventually revealed that Peter was actually bisexual and in love with Angel. He makes nihilism fun. The pleasure here resides in his awesome ability to transform gleeful absurdities into a well-sculpted riddle. Life and art may not be that unfair, on the evidence of watching Palahniuk hitting his stride.
Stunning, funky stuff. Ominous, shocking. Must reading for art lovers and those who love a good puzzle.
Diary is Palahniuk at his harrowing best. A refreshing shot of adrenaline to the intellect. Join Reader Rewards and earn your way to a free book!
