Chuck Palahniuk

Title:  Stranger than Fiction
 Chuck Palahniuk
Genre:  Non-Fiction
From Chuck Palahniuk’s world has always been, well, different from yours and mine. The pieces that comprise Stranger than Fiction, his first nonfiction collection, prove just how different, in ways both highly entertaining and deeply unsettling. Included are encounters with alternative culture heroes Marilyn Manson and Juliette Lewis; the peculiar wages of fame attendant on the big-budget film production of the movie Fight Club; life as an assembly-line drivetrain installer by day, hospice volunteer driver by night; the really peculiar lives of submariners; the really violent world (and mangled ears) of college wrestlers; the underground world of iron-pumping anabolic-steroid gobblers; the immensely upsetting circumstances of his father’s murder and the trial of his killer-each essay or vignette offers a unique facet of existence as lived in and/or observed by one of our most flagrantly daring and original literary talents.

Title:  Choke
 Chuck Palahniuk
Genre:  Fiction
From Chuck’s fourth novel Choke tells the story of Victor Mancini, self-proclaimed sex addict and fake restaurant choker. Turning regular diner patrons into instant “heros,” Victor fakes his way through life, earning funds to keep his old mother from death’s door.

Choke took a more behind-the-scenes path to movie production limbo. Meaning, the first we heard is all we’ve heard. Nothing much seems to have changed for better or for worse. Bandeira Entertainment, production company behind such films as Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem For A Dream, has the option. But so far the only person publicly attached is screenwriter Clark Gregg (What Lies Beneath). He has delivered a script which everyone is happy with, and which they’re ready to move on.

Still, despite this drought of news, Chuck has been quoted as repeatedly saying that, if any of his books was to see the light of film next, it would be Choke. So keeping quiet on this production must be doing the boys at Bandeira Entertainment something right. With production supposedly slated to begin any day now, we’re strangely left with only the below media.

Title:  Fight Club
 Chuck Palahniuk
Genre:  Fiction
From ChuckPalahniuk.netThe Palahniuk fan is divided into two classes. Those who have seen Fight Club. And those are going to. For those of you that have seen it, you understand the tone of this page and know why we’re so passionate about this film. We call ourselves a cult here because that’s exactly the type of unity that Fight Club caused among so many movie-goers. So even though is an “author site,” this section is dedicated solely to the movie that helped kick start all of this into motion in the first place. It stands alone as a website all in it’s own. So we hope you enjoy the time we’ve put into it.Fight Club is a movie that defied…..defined…..just plain out shook the barriers of our past millennium…it came out just at the right time and movie historians that study it years from now will call it a landmark in film for what was to come in the 21st Century. You won’t know what to call it.. You won’t know how to explain it. All you will know is that it got under your skin. Tyler Durden has shown you the way.

In Tyler we trust…
In Fincher we witness…
In Fight Club we bleed…
