Fight Club Book Description:

Chuck Palahniuk showed himself to be his generation's most visionary satirist in this, his first book. Fight Club's estranged narrator leaves his lackluster job when he comes under the thrall of Tyler Durden, an enigmatic young man who holds secret after-hours boxing matches in the basement of bars. There, two men fight "as long as they have to." This is a gloriously original work that exposes the darkness at the core of our modern world.

Fight Club Book Description:

Laisse-moi te parler de Tyler. Tyler dit : les choses que tu possèdes finissent toujours par te posséder. C'est seulement après avoir tout perdu que tu es libre de faire ce dont tu as envie. Le fight club t'offre cette liberté. Première règle du fight club :'Tu ne parles pas du fight club. Deuxième règle du fight club : Tu ne punies pas du fight club. Tyler dit que chercher à s'améliorer, c'est rien que de la branlette. Tyler dit que l'autodestruction est sans doute la réponse. Métaphore acide et jubilatoire d'un monde au bord du chaos, perdu faute de révolution, Fight Club a été porté à l'écran en 1999 par David Fincher, le réalisateur de Seven et Alien 3. Le DVD du film est édité par Fox Pathé Europa.

Studying Fight Club Book Description:

Fight Club is, on one level, pop-culture phenomena and on another, a deeply philosophical and satirical exploration of modern life. David Fincher’s 1999 film (and Chuck Palahniuk’s source novel) has had a huge impact on audiences worldwide leading to spoofs, homage, merchandising and numerous Internet fan sites. On initial release the film was met with wide hostility from critics who either failed to appreciate its satirical intent or believed the film failed to deliver on its satirical promise. Early in its DVD afterlife, however, a wider audience began to appreciate the film’s significance and radical message. Although attracted by the film’s playfulness and star wattage, however, many students struggle with its theoretical notions such as Capitalism, materialism, anarchy and so on. This is one film, which therefore merits a thoughtful and provocative analysis but also an accessible one, and Mark Ramey has provided just that.

He's back where he started, but this go-round he's got more at stake than his own life.The time has arrived . . . Rize or Die. New York Tomes bestselling novelist Chuck Palahniuk and acclaimed artist Cameron Stewart have collaborated for one of the most highly anticipated comic book and literary events of 2015--the return of Tyler Durden. The first rule of Fight Club 2 might be not to talk about it, but Fight Club 2 is generating international headlines and will introduce a new generation of readers to Project Mayhem. Praise for the comics that comprise Fight Club 2: "At turns deeply poignant and very funny, Palahniuk's freakish fables capture a twisted zeitgeist and add an oddly inspirational and subversive voice to the contemporary canon.... In the post-9/11 present, a hyperactive, Internet-obsessed, war- and recession-weary America apparently needs Tyler again."-THE ATLANTIC "The book is fantastic, my highest recommendation.... Excellent work by Cameron Stewart and David Mack, and by our awesome friends at Dark Horse Comics."-Brian Michael Bendis "If Tyler Durden needed a resurgence, there's no time like the present for his return... Fight Club 2 is a comic that taps back into everything great about the source material, and one that makes Tyler Durden's warm nihilistic embrace a welcome draw back into a familiar world of cynicism, violence, and anarchy...."Tyler Lives," and I couldn't be happier by the prospect of more bedlam."-NEWSARAMA "Palahniuk is delivering a worthy sequel to his most beloved story."-THE NERDIST "Entertaining."-COMIC BOOK RESOURCES "Excellent."-THE BEAT "An amazing piece of work. You do not want to miss out on this."-COMICVINE "Perfect."-FORCES OF GEEK "We have a worthy sequel on our hands.... A must read."-COMICOSITY "Cameron Stewart truly outdoes himself on every level in this book."-BLOODY DISGUSTING "Clever and beautiful."-COMICS ALLIANCE

Quicklet on Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk Book Description:

Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less. Fight Club was written by Chuck Palahniuk, who was born in Pasco, WA on February 21, 1962. He grew up in a blue-collar home, and after his parents were divorced, he often spent parts of his childhood living with his grandparents. He attended the University of Oregon's School of Journalism in the 80's and spent time working as a journalist. Palahniuk was a hybrid worker, taking on blue-collar jobs, including one job as a mechanic, while also exercising his literary talents by writing how-to manuals for fixing trucks. He began writing seriously in his mid-thirties after attending a seminar hosted by writer Tom Spanbauer. This relationship would influence Palahniuk's minimalist writing style. His first attempt at publication never garnered him an agent. He wrote a short story in response to his rejection from publishing agencies and this short story later became chapter six of his novel, Fight Club. The first edition of the novel had a short shelf life. Interest in the novel from 20th Century Fox led to Palahniuk securing an agent, and later led to the film adaptation of his novel. The film and the novel have gone on to become cult hits, making Palahniuk an award-winning novelist. EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 2 The narrator meets Marla in the Trinity Episcopal basement during Remaining Men Together, a testicular cancer support group. The narrator can't sleep and attending support groups for the terminally ill is the only way he knows how to feel emotion. He's never been able to cry, but being wrapped in a bear hug by Bob, a man that abused steroids and has lost his physique, the narrator can cry and feel loved. Marla is a gothic beauty. She has short matte hair, big brown eyes, and pale skin. She is the only woman at the testicular cancer support group, and it bothers the narrator. He can't cry in front of her and he notices that Marla also attends various support groups he belongs to. ...buy the Quicklet to read more!
