Ask him if this is true:
Palahniuk has mentioned at book readings that he is working on a musical based on Fight Club with David Fincher and Trent Reznor. Brad Pitt, who played the role of Tyler Durden in the film, has expressed interest in also being involved.

What was the last event that he attended that the Cacophony Society held.


Super jealous of you.

If I could (and I've been wanting to know the answer to this for a while now) ask Chuck Palahniuk a question it would be this: If he plans on publishing more nonfiction books.

His nonfiction is probably the best I've read (though nobody tops E.B. White), and I would love to read more of it.


I would ask him about the influence of European philosophers on his books. There is an uncanny resemblance to Zizekian analysis and his books. Speaking of which, I might ask him if he plans any new fiction (not the same as new books). All of his stories are now too similar to be anything but formulaic.


I got three you can use:

1. Is he still embarrassed/ashamed/frustrated over what happend with the Karen Valby interview in 2003 as well as the subsequent recording posted on his website?

2. Is it getting harder to write "The Hidden Gun" in each novel as fans have started expecting it?

3. How has he been able to keep a minimalist style when so many people have worked toward using an overabundance of vocabualary and description?


All I ask is that if anybody asking a question uses the phrase, "...because, as a writer myself..." you walk out into the audience and slap them silly.


Good questions, everyone. Thanks!

Ironic, I've wondered about the "hidden gun" thing, too. One is barely hidden on page 25 of Snuff, but I'm hoping that's the decoy--it was that obvious--and that there's at least one more.
