An Electric Literature Pick of 9 Toxic Friendships in Literature

THE FIRST RULE about fight club is you don't talk about fight club. Every weekend, in the basements and parking lots of bars across the country, young men with whitecollar jobs and failed lives take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded just as long as they have to. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything. Fight club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter, and dark, anarchic genius, and it's only the beginning of his plans for violent revenge on an empty consumer-culture world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] rousing narration by Jim Colby…Jim Colby delivers a raw intensity that is spot-on for the twisted mind of the protagonist. As the evil Tyler Durden, Colby is astonishing, capturing every inch of the character’s darkness while still projecting his sense of humor. The result is a performance that draws its inspiration from Palahniuk’s well-crafted characters…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“A powerful, dark, original novel…A memorable debut by an important new writer.” Robert Stone, New York Times bestselling author
“Fight Club offers diabolically sharp and funny writing.”  Washington Post Book World
“An astonishing debut…Fight Club is a dark, unsettling, and nerve-chafing satire.” Seattle Times
“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.” Publishers Weekly
“This is a dark and disturbing book that dials directly into youthful angst and will likely horrify the parents of teens and twenty-somethings. It’s also a powerful, and possibly brilliant, first novel.” Booklist
“This brilliant bit of nihilism succeeds where so many self- described transgressive novels do not: It’s dangerous because it’s so compelling.” Kirkus Reviews
