Fight ClubBook - 1999
In a gritty style reminiscent of Bret Easton Ellis and Jay McInerney, Chuck Palahniuk tells the tales of inhabitants of an urban underground in Fight Club, his brilliantly apocalyptic and unnerving first novel. In the underworld of the Fight Club, every weekend is an occasion for mortal combat. In basements and parking lots across the country, young men fight each other barehanded. Then they go back to their jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth with the feeling they can handle anything.
But soon this gritty group expands beyond its original boundaries and draws a political campaign coordinator into a growing pool of insanity that reaches into boardrooms across America. But the Fight Club is just the beginning of Tyler Durden's plans for revenge on society.
