Ep 49: Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk

June 26, 2015 | By | No Comments">No Comments


On this episode, Tyler and Don take a roadtrip to Naperville, Illinois to witness an author reading with FIGHT CLUB master Chuck Palahniuk. But what’s an author reading have to do with art or, especially, performance?!

In Chuck’s world, author readings aren’t your normal “corner of a back room in a bookstore” affair. For him, they’re much more palpable with beach balls, bags of candy and 1st Edition leather-bound versions of his books.

The guys got the chance talk to Chuck in his hotel room before the reading about Fight Club 2, as well as his new collection of short stories and the impending musical version of Fight Club currently being workshopped by David Fincher & Trent Rezor…in consultation with Julie Taymor!

This is an episode about novels, author readings, violent love stories, the Marriot, Dan Brown’s Holy Grail and more!
