Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk

10/13/2011 - 6:00pm

Published in 1996, Fight Club was Palahniuk’s astounding first novel. In it, he depicts a world so scant of meaning that at the book’s opening, we find the healthy protagonist attending a cancer support group just to make human connections. But then he meets Tyler Durden: entrepreneur, anarchist, and founder of Fight Club, a secret partnership of men who fight each other as a way to fight their way back to life. This novel is about a desperate, sometimes violent search for meaning in a world where there are almost no options.
