Some brief overview of this book

The first rule about fight club is you dont talk about fight club.

In his debut novel, Chuck Palahniuk showed himself to be his generations most visionary satirist. ?Fight Clubs estranged narrator leaves his lackluster job when he comes under the thrall of Tyler Durden, an enigmatic young man who holds secret boxing matches in the basement of bars. There two men fight as long as they have to. A gloriously original work that exposes what is at the core of our modern world.

s (an early version of Invisible Monsters) was being rejected as too risky, he decided to take the gloves off, so to speak, and wrote something he never expected to see the light of day. Ironically, Fight Club was accepted for publication, and its subsequent filming by directory David Fincher earned the author an obsessive cult following. The apocalyptic, blackly humorous story of a loners entanglement with a charismatic but dangerous underground leader, Fight Club was the first in a series of controversial fiction that would keep Palahniuk in the spotlight. Since then, he has crafted strange, disturbing tales around unlikely subjects: a disfigured model bent on revenge (the revised Invisible Monsters) ... the last surviving member of a death cult (Survivor) ... a sex addict who resorts to a bizarre restaurant scam to pay the bills (Choke) ... a lethal African nursery rhyme (Lullaby) ... and so the list continues. Although Palahniuk makes occasional forays into nonfiction, (e.g., Fugitives and Refugees and Stranger than Fiction), it is his novels that generate the most buzz. His outrĂ© plots and jump-cut storytelling are definitely not for everyone—some have likened them to the horrible accident you cant tear your eyes away from—but even critics cant help but be impressed by his flair for language, his talent for satire, and his sheer originality. Newsday wrote, Palahniuk is one of the freshest, most intriguing voices to appear in a long time. He rearranges Vonneguts sly humor, DeLillos mordant social analysis, and Pynchons antic surrealism (or is it R. Crumbs?) into a gleaming puzzle palace all his own. Palahniuk has said that he has heard a lot from readers who were never readers before they saw his books, from boys in schools where his books are banned. This might be the best evidence that Palahniuk is a writer for a new age, introducing a (mostly male) audience to worlds on the page that usually only exist in technicolor nightmares.

Good To Know

Palahniuk (pronounced paul-a-nik) worked as a diesel mechanic for a trucking company before he became an author, jotting story notes for The Fight Club under trucks he was supposed to be working on. Palahniuks family has had a sad history of violence: His grandfather killed his grandmother and then committed suicide; later in life, his divorced father was murdered in 1999 by a girlfriends ex-husband. The killer was convicted and sentenced to death in October, 2001. Palahniuks book, Choke, was driven by an attempt to look at how sexual compulsion can destroy (see essay below for more). When not working on his novels, Palahniuk has written features for Gear magazine, through which he befriended shock rocker Marilyn Manson; and is reportedly working on a script of the Katie Arnoldi novel Chemical Pink for Fight Club director David Fincher. While writing, Palahniuk has said he listens to Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, and Radiohead. To a reader who asked in a Barnes & Noble.com chat why the novel Invisible Monsters was not released in hardcover, Palahniuk responded: My original request was not to have any of my books released as hardcovers b/c I felt guilty asking for over $20 for anything I had done. With Invisible Monsters I finally got my way. Invisible Monsters was inspired by fashion magazines Palahniuk was reading at his laundromat, according to an interview with The Village Voice. I love the language of fashion magazines. Eighteen adjectives and you find the word sweater at the end. Ethereal. Sacred. I thought, Wouldnt it be fun to write a novel in this fashion magazine language, so packed with hyperbole?

Biography

Readers of Chuck Palahniuks novels must gird themselves for the bizarre, the violent, the macabre, and the just plain disturbing. Having done that, they can then just enjoy the ride. The story goes that Palahniuk wrote Fight Club out of frustration. Believing that his first submission to publishers (an early version of Invisible Monsters) was being rejected as too risky, he decided to take the gloves off, so to speak, and wrote something he never expected to see the light of day. Ironically, Fight Club was accepted for publication, and its subsequent filming by directory David Fincher earned the author an obsessive cult following. The apocalyptic, blackly humorous story of a loners entanglement with a charismatic but dangerous underground leader, Fight Club was the first in a series of controversial fiction that would keep Palahniuk in the spotlight. Since then, he has crafted strange, disturbing tales around unlikely subjects: a disfigured model bent on revenge (the revised Invisible Monsters) ... the last surviving member of a death cult (Survivor) ... a sex addict who resorts to a bizarre restaurant scam to pay the bills (Choke) ... a lethal African nursery rhyme (Lullaby) ... and so the list continues. Although Palahniuk makes occasional forays into nonfiction, (e.g., Fugitives and Refugees and Stranger than Fiction), it is his novels that generate the most buzz. His outrĂ© plots and jump-cut storytelling are definitely not for everyone—some have likened them to the horrible accident you cant tear your eyes away from—but even critics cant help but be impressed by his flair for language, his talent for satire, and his sheer originality.
