Description :  The first rule about fight club is you don't talk about fight club.<br /><br />Chuck Palahniuk showed himself to be his generation’s most visionary satirist in this, his first book. Fight Club’s estranged narrator leaves his lackluster job when he comes under the thrall of Tyler Durden, an enigmatic young man who holds secret after-hours boxing matches in the basement of bars. There, two men fight "as long as they have to." This is a gloriously original work that exposes the darkness at the core of our modern world.

Release Date :  2011-10-18
Description :  “As gleefully, vividly, hilariously obscene as you'd expect. . . . Irreverent and hugely entertaining." —NPR <br /><br /> From the bestselling author of&#xa0;Fight Club comes a dark and brilliant satire about adolescence, Hell, and the Devil. &#xa0; <br /> &#xa0;<br /> Madison is the thirteen-year-old daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire. Abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, she dies over the holiday, presumably of a marijuana overdose. The last thing she remembers is getting into a town car and falling asleep. Then she's waking up in Hell. Literally. Madison soon finds that she shares a cell with a motley crew of young sinners: a cheerleader, a jock, a nerd, and a punk rocker, united by their doomed fate, like an afterschool detention for the damned. Together they form an odd coalition and march across the unspeakable landscape of Hell--full of used diapers, dandruff, WiFi blackout spots, evil historical figures, and one horrific call center--to confront the Devil himself.<br />

Description :  The author of Fight Club takes America beyond our darkest dreams in this timely satire.<br /><br />People pass the word only to those they trust most: Adjustment Day is coming. They’ve been reading a mysterious book and memorizing its directives. They are ready for the reckoning.<br /><br />Adjustment Day, the author’s first novel in four years, is an ingeniously comic work in which Chuck Palahniuk does what he does best: skewer the absurdities in our society. Smug, geriatric politicians bring the nation to the brink of a third world war in an effort to control the burgeoning population of young males; working-class men dream of burying the elites; and professors propound theories that offer students only the bleakest future.<br /><br />Into this dyspeptic time a blue-black book is launched carrying such wisdom as:<br /><br />Imagine there’s no God. There is no Heaven or Hell. There is only your son and his son and his son and the world you leave for them.<br /><br />The weak want you to forgo your destiny just as they’ve shirked theirs.<br /><br />A smile is your best bulletproof vest.<br /><br />When Adjustment Day arrives, it fearlessly makes real the logical conclusion of every separatist fantasy, alternative fact, and conspiracy theory lurking in the American psyche.

She can see and hear every detail of the world she left behind, yet she’s invisible to everyone who’s still alive. Not only do people look right through her, they <i>walk</i> right through her as well. The upside is that, no longer subject to physical limitations, she can pass through doors and walls. Her first stop is her parents’ luxurious apartment, where she encounters the ghost of her long-deceased grandmother. For Madison, the encounter triggers memories of the awful summer she spent upstate with Nana Minnie and her grandfather, Papadaddy. As she revisits the painful truth of what transpired over those months (including a disturbing and finally fatal meeting in a rest stop’s fetid men’s room, in which . . . well, never mind), her saga of eternal damnation takes on a new and sinister meaning. Satan has had Madison in his sights from the very beginning: through her and her narcissistic celebrity parents, he plans to engineer an era of eternal damnation. For <i>everyone</i>.<br />&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Once again, our unconventional but plucky heroine must face her fears and gather her wits for the battle of a lifetime.

In a mansion once occupied by The Rolling Stones, Marilyn Manson reads his own Tarot cards and talks sweetly to his beautiful actress girlfriend. Across the country, men build their own full-size castles and rocketships that will send them into space. Palahniuk himself experiments with steroids, works on an assembly line by day and as a hospice volunteer by night, and experiences the brutal murder of his father by a white supremacist. With this new direction, Chuck Palahniuk has proven he can do anything.<br /><br /><b>BONUS:&#xa0;</b>This ebook edition includes an excerpt from Chuck Palahniuk's&#xa0;<i>Doomed.</i>&#xa0;

Excellent work by Cameron Stewart and David Mack, and by our awesome friends at Dark Horse Comics.”—<i>Brian Michael Bendis</i><br /><br />“If Tyler Durden needed a resurgence, there’s no time like the present for his return… <b>Fight Club 2 is a comic that taps back into everything great about the source material, and one that makes Tyler Durden’s warm nihilistic embrace a welcome draw back into a familiar world of cynicism, violence, and anarchy</b>....“Tyler Lives,” and I couldn’t be happier by the prospect of more bedlam.”—<i>NEWSARAMA</i><br /><br />“<b>Palahniuk is delivering a worthy sequel to his most beloved story.</b>”—<i>THE NERDIST</i><br /><br />“<b>Entertaining.</b>”—<i>COMIC BOOK RESOURCES</i><br /><br />“<b>Excellent.</b>”—<i>THE BEAT</i><br /><br />“<b>An amazing piece of work.

Description :  About the Series: In mid-1962, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner was given a partial transcript of an interview with Miles Davis. It covered jazz, of course, but it also included Davis’s ruminations on race, politics and culture. Fascinated, Hef sent the writer—future Pulitzer Prize–winning author Alex Haley, an unknown at the time—back to glean even more opinion and insight from Davis. The resulting exchange, published in the September 1962 issue, became the first official Playboy Interview and kicked off a remarkable run of public inquisition that continues today—and that has featured just about every cultural titan of the past half century.To celebrate the interview’s 50th anniversary, the editors of Playboy have assembled 13 compilations of the magazine’s most (in)famous interviews—from big mouths and wild men to sports gods and literary mavericks. Here is our collection of 12 interviews with the most riveting writers.

Description :  Im Milleniumsjahr 2000 entwickelte sich &#34;Fight Club&#34; zu einem waschechten Massenphänomen. Die Verfilmung des gleichnamigen Debütromans von Chuck Palahniuk (der ebenfalls das Drehbuch schrieb) wurde ein Blockbuster, Regisseur David Fincher zählt seither zu den wichtigsten Filmemachern Hollywoods und Autor Chuck Palahniuk mauserte sich zum enfant terrible der amerikanischen Literaturszene und besetzt regelmäßig die Bestsellerlisten. Den Rest besorgte Brad Pitts ikonische Darstellung des Tyler Durden, in dem sich nihilistischer Kulturpessimismus und anarchistischer Befreiungskampf wider die Diktatur des verlogenen Mittelstandsgehorsams schauderhaft vereinten. &#34;Fight Club&#34; war ätzende Kapitalismuskritik im Gewand des Starkinos, der Kult hält bis heute an.<br/> Was mag 15 Jahre später aus Tyler Durden geworden sein, dessen düsteren Zukunftsprognosen von der Gegenwart so verheerend unterboten wurden? Die Frage ließ dem bekennenden Comicfan Palahniuk keine Ruhe, und so schuf er zusammen mit dem kanadischen Starzeichner und Eisner-Award-Gewinner Cameron Stewart (Superman Adventures, B.P.R.D., Batman) exklusiv diese Graphic Novel, um Tyler Durden, nach Literatur und Film, im Comic eine weitere Bühne zu geben. Tyler Durden ist zurück - zweifellos eine der faszinierendsten Fortsetzungen der zeitgenössischen amerikanischen Popkulturgeschichte!

Description :  Questa volta, Palahniuk ci porta a fare un bel giretto nella Hollywood dei Tempi d'Oro (quelli di Bette Davis e Joan Crawford, per intenderci) e ci racconta - a modo suo, naturalmente - la fiaba sulfurea e decadente di Katherine Kenton, una stella del palcoscenico, ma anche una famosa sceneggiatrice alle prese con la peggiore e più inevitabile delle disgrazie possibili: l'invecchiamento. A raccontare questa fiaba c'è una sorta di dama di compagnia, domestica, confidente di Katherine a nome Hazie Coogan, che l'ha accompagnata per tutta la sua carriera attraverso svariati matrimoni, altrettanti divorzi e parecchi interventi di chirurgia estetica. A complicare la situazione contribuisce l'apparizione del giovane (troppo giovane!!!) Webster Carlton Westward III, che riesce a intrufolarsi nel cuore (e tra le lenzuola) di Katherine. Ma Hazie scopre che Webster ha già scritto una biografia senza veli che prevede la morte di Katherine in una scena degna di un barocchissimo musical....<br /> Come sempre, Chuck mescola sapientemente satira, sovversione, sorprese per raccontarci una storia senza tempo e senza speranza sul nostro mondo sempre più assetato di star e di personaggi pubblici pieni di glamour e sempre più desideroso di distruggerli.

Description :  <b>¿Adolescentes en el infierno?</b><br /> <br /><b>Del escritor más polémico de su generación, una novela de iniciación... después de la muerte de su protagonista. La versión más retorcida del infierno.</b><br /><br />Hija de una estrella de cine narcisista y de un multimillonario, una Navidad Madison es abandonada en un internado suizo mientras sus padres se dedican a impulsar sus nuevos proyectos y a adoptar huerfanitos. Entonces Madison muere por una sobredosis y lo siguiente que sabe es que está en el Infierno rodeada de un variopinto grupo de jóvenes pecadores demasiado bueno para ser cierto: una animadora, un deportista, un empollón y un rockero punk. Unidos por el destino, Madison y sus colegas tendrán que atravesar el Desierto de Caspa y cruzar el Valle de los Pañales Desechables Usados para enfrentarse a Satanás en su ciudadela, y nada podrá detenerlos.<br /><br /><i>¿Estás ahí, Satanás? Soy yo, Madison. Acabo de llegar aquí, al Infierno, pero no es culpa mía, salvo tal vez por el hecho de haberme muerto de una sobredosis de marihuana. Tal vez esté en el Infierno por ser gorda... Una auténtica foca. Si una puede ir al Infierno por tener la autoestima baja, entonces es por eso por lo que estoy aquí. Ojalá pudiera mentirte y decirte que estoy en los huesos y que soy rubia y tetuda. Pero, créeme, tengo mis razones para estar gorda.</i><br /><br /><i>Para empezar, déjame que me presente.</i><br /><br /><b>Reseñas:</b><br /><br />«Más importante aún es que Palahniuk conserve las facultades que hacen que le sigamos leyendo: sigue siendo divertido a matar, asqueroso cuando se le antoja [...], su lenguaje sigue siendo duro y elástico, sigue trabajando tanto las repeticiones casi musicales como los giros inesperados y, si le viene en gana, puede ser hilarante [...].»<br /><br />Kiko Amat, <i>La Vanguardia</i><br /><br />«La decimosegunda novela de Palahniuk es tan alegremente obscena como cabría esperar, también es divertidísima [...]. Como novela de iniciación es dulce, inspiradora, está llena de esperanza; como sátira es divertida e irreverente, y está cargada de grandes dosis de entretenimiento.»<br /><br />Michael Schaub, <i>NPR</i><br /><br />«En <i>Condenada</i> se dan algunas características de El club de la lucha: desafección juvenil, violencia, humor escatológico, una ambientación distópica, sátira cultural como deporte de riesgo... [...] Una aventura rocambolesca de proporciones swifteanas, un parque de atracciones del Infierno que muestra cómo una adolescente con sobrepeso consigue bajarle los humos al mismísimo Diablo.»<br /><br />Claude Peck, <i>Minneapolis Star-Tribune</i>
