Tyler Durden

“What Tyler had created was the shadow of a giant hand. Only now the fingers were Nosferatu-long and the thumb was too short, but he said how at exactly four-thirty the hand was perfect. The giant shadow hand was perfect for one minute, and for one perfect minute Tyler had sat in the palm of a perfection he\’d created himself.

One minute was enough, Tyler said, a person had to work hard for it, but a minute of perfection was worth the effort. A moment was the most you could ever expect from perfection.”

    1. “Imagine,” Tyler said, “stalking elk past department store windows and stinking racks of beautiful rotting dresses and tuxedos on hangers; you’ll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life, and you’ll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. Jack and the beanstalk, you’ll climb up through the dripping forest canopy and the air will be so clean you’ll see tiny figures pounding corn and laying strips of venison to dry in the empty car pool lane of an abandoned superhighway stretching eight-lanes-wide and August-hot for a thousand miles.” ~Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club, Chapter 16

    2. Nice, a quote… no, two from the book.

      Met the author, Chuck Palahniuk. A few times actually. He’s all over Portland.

    3. @Paul_Is_Drunk: fffff Not fair. I want to meet him. I’m about forty-five miles north of Portland.

    5. I need to buy the first edition of Fight Club. Yes, the book is that good.

    6. @Puulaahi: Somehow “buying” it would seem to violate the spirit of the book.

    7. @reboot: Perhaps you should Re-read it. The book is about many things in modern society. But it’s mostly about how men have become pussys.

    8. @Puulaahi: It’s also a metaphor for gay sex. Chuck is a very masculine but gay man.

    9. @Puulaahi: The book is a partly a rant against consumerism. Actually going into a store and buying it, being a consumer, is ironic.

    10. Steal the book, and mail Palahniuk $10 direct to his home.

    11. Fight Club is an amazing book, but Palahniuk is a hack. Every book he’s ever written is just a variation on self-improvement through destruction. Choke, Invisible Monsters, Survivor, Lullaby, Fight Club…they all use the same repetition device and writing style.

      It was really depressing – the more of his books I read, the more I realized I’d already read them.

    12. The Best. Choke isn’t bad either…

    13. @lordofruin: Why do you keep reading them all if he’s a hack?

    14. @lordofruin: Yes. I highly concur with that. My favorite has to be Diary by him because I really felt for Peter at the end of it. I’ve not read Smut or Rant yet but give it time.

    16. @reboot: I don’t own every copy and I am by no means an extreme consumer like the people portrayed in his book. Like I said earlier. The book is about many things in modern society with some anarchy thrown in.
