Internationally best-selling author Chuck Palahniuk’s uproarious and irreverent debut novel Fight Club was transformed into an Academy Award-nominated film starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt.
When a listless office employee (the narrator) meets Tyler Durden, his life begins to take on a strange new dimension. Together they form Fight Club – a secretive underground group sponsoring bloody bare-knuckle boxing matches staged in seedy alleys, vacant warehouses, and dive-bar basements. Fight Club lets ordinary men vent their suppressed rage, and it quickly develops a fanatical following. Before long it takes on all the trappings of a quasi-religious cult, replete with a devastating ideological mission to accomplish.
A masterpiece of raw violence and black humor, this exciting novel challenges listeners to see the world through a new – and quite possibly deranged – set of eyes. Acclaimed narrator Jim Colby brings out the dark satire in this tale of modern alienation.
