Palahniuk Talks About “Fight Club 2”

Chuck Palahniuk exploded onto the literary scene in 1996 with his novel “Fight Club,” a raging anti-commercialism polemic and outlet to his inner anger. With the release of David Fincher’s 1999 film adaptation, he—like the film—became a looming cultural crusader in a sea of crassness, engraved in the minds of young adults as the hyper-masculine manifesto to all that is wrong with America’s consumer culture.
