Beschreibung des Verlags
Publicat in 1996 si devenit un clasic al literaturii underground, "Fight Club", debutul lui Chuck Palahniuk, este unanim considerat in momentul de fata drept unul dintre cele mai originale si provocatoare romane scrise in ultimul deceniu al secolului XX. Romanul este povestea unui tinar care traieste intr-o lume plina de esecuri si de minciuni. El isi gaseste debuseul in batai clandestine organizate in subsolurile barurilor dupa ora inchiderii. Nascut din mintea lui Tyler Durden, "Fight Club" reprezinta un mod de evadare din existentele marunte si restrictive ale lui Tyler si ale prietenilor sai. Dar in lumea lui Tyler nu exista reguli, nu exista limite, nu exista obstacole. Romanul a stat la baza unui film celebru (1999), regizat de David Fincher, cu Brad Pitt, Edward Norton si Helena Bonham Carter in rolurile principale
Featuring soap made from human fat, waiters at high-class restaurants who do unmentionable things to soup and an underground organization dedicated to inflicting a violent anarchy upon the land, Palahniuk's apocalyptic first novel is clearly not for the faint of heart. The unnamed (and extremely unreliable) narrator, who makes his living investigating accidents for a car company in order to assess their liability, is combating insomnia and a general sense of anomie by attending a steady series of support-group meetings for the grievously ill, at one of which (testicular cancer) he meets a young woman named Marla. She and the narrator get into a love triangle of sorts with Tyler Durden, a mysterious and gleefully destructive young man with whom the narrator starts a fight club, a secret society that offers young professionals the chance to beat one another to a bloody pulp. Mayhem ensues, beginning with the narrator's condo exploding and culminating with a terrorist attack on the world's tallest building. Writing in an ironic deadpan and including something to offend everyone, Palahniuk is a risky writer who takes chances galore, especially with a particularly bizarre plot twist he throws in late in the book. Caustic, outrageous, bleakly funny, violent and always unsettling, Palahniuk's utterly original creation will make even the most jaded reader sit up and take notice. Movie rights to Fox 2000.
