Text Ø Ï Chuck Palahniuk It follows the experiences of an unnamed protagonist struggling with insomnia Inspired by his doctor's exasperated remark You do not talk about Fight Club butUpon winning the Oregon Book Award for best novel and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award Chuck Palahniuk’s visionary debut novel Fight Club was shot to the veins of mainstream fiction Following the success of its 1999 film adaptation directed by David Fincher Fight Club gained cult classic status and has become a disturbingly accurate interpretation of our modern worldThe unnamed male narrator suffering from a long streak of insomnia finds cure by attending cancer support groups But when Marla Singer—a sallow heavy smoking nihilist—enters the evening meetings and mirrors his own fraud his insomnia returns so he confronts Singer to split schedules with himOn the night when his condominium mysteriously blows up he calls Tyler Durden whom he had previously met—under strange circumstances—on a beach They agree to meet at a bar where after drinking Durden asks him a favor “I want you to hit me as hard as you can” The narrator swings the punch that cradled Fight Club into the world Shortly a multitude of men with white collar jobs join them Every weekend in the parking lots and basements of bars they hold these late hour no holds barred and barefisted fights that “go on as long as they have to”These one on one melees curiously evoke psychotherapeutic effects—resembling that of enlightenment—within the men they are reborn from their entombed livesFight Club soon evolves into Project Mayhem an anarchic army led by Durden who seeks to fulfill his visions of global enlightenment through organized chaos public unrest and demolition Fight Club is a social satire on the dehumanizing effects of consumerism alienation brought by chronic materialism illusory comforts overindulgence and career and lifestyle obsessions fueled by advertising “The modern world is for business—not for the people” as what the great psychoanalyst Carl Jung said“It’s only after you’ve lost everything that you’re free to do anything” Skillfully fusing Zen elements with Durden’s extremist ideologies Palahniuk has written a provocative expression of metaphysical rebellion The collective revolt against the existential vacuum is Durden’s nucleus and what draws men toward him Fight Club’s noir ambience and the solid economy of its prose are reminiscent of Albert Camus’s The Stranger but with the sharp nonlinear narration executing its plot; inheriting Kurt Vonnegut’s dark humor Chuck Palahniuk is among today’s distinct and intriguing voices
