One of the most provocative fiction writers at work today, Palahniuk, who has described his own work as "transgressional," has written fourteen novels, including Fight Club, the basis for the film starring Brad Pitt. This evening will be as unique as the author on stage, full of prizes, games, a sure-to-shock story, and audience Q&A.
In Make Something Up: Stories You Can't Unread, Palahniuk's first collection of stories, his full range of invention, absurdity, and strangeness is front and center. The author also revisits Tyler Durden, giving us an unexpected side of his Fight Club protagonist in the short story, "Expedition."
Fight Club 2 is the long-anticipated graphic-novel sequel from Dark Horse Comics which features more of fan-favorite Tyler Durden, Marla, and The Narrator and throws us straight back into the mayhem and revolution of the original story.
Palahniuk is the author of Make Something Up: Stories You Can't Unread. His ten previous novels are the bestselling Fight Club, which was made into a film by David Fincher; Survivor; Invisible Monsters; Choke, which was made into a film by director Clark Gregg; Lullaby; Diary; Haunted; Rant; Snuff; and Pygmy. He is also the author of Fugitives and Refugees, a nonfiction profile of Portland, Oregon, published as part of the Crown Journeys series, and the nonfiction collection Stranger Than Fiction.
