Chuck Palahniuk könyvei a rukkolán


Chuck Palahniuk - Halálraítélt
Chuck ​Palahniuk 1962-es születésű amerikai író, újságíró, factoid-gyáros és az anarcho-dadaista Cacophony Society portlandi csoportjának tagja. Az 1996-ban megjelent Harcosok klubja óta 12 regénye jelent meg, ebből hivatalosan csupán egy jelenti korábbi műve remixét (Láthatatlan szörnyek, 2012), bírálói szerint azonban valamennyi. Novelláit, esszéit és sztárinterjúit többnyire rangos férfimagazinok közlik, mint a GQ, a Playboy vagy a Gear, a róla szóló akadémiai tanulmányok pedig immár vaskos köteteket töltenének meg. Ezidáig két regényét (Harcosok klubja, Fulladás) és egy novelláját (Románc) filmesítették meg, a Láthatatlan szörnyekből a magyar Kiss Gábor készített képregény-adaptációt, a Harcosok klubja készülő folytatása pedig a szerző ígérete szerint ugyancsak graphic novel formájában fog megjelenni.

Chuck Palahniuk - Harcosok ​klubja
Chuck ​Palahniuk bemutatkozó regénye egy új generáció valóságos bibliája lett. Névtelen kisember hőse lélekölő hivatali munkáját és fogyasztói rabszolgalétét megelégelve lázas ámokfutásba kezd, fészekrakó életmódját előbb önpusztító párharcokra, majd nagyvárosi terrorakciókra cserélve, a háta mögött hagyott nagy amerikai Álmatlanságból mind közelebb sodródva a totális tagadás tébolyához. A Harcosok klubja egyszerre adrenalindús akciófolyam, csavaros thriller és szívszorító románc, de mindenekelőtt egy kíméletlen önvizsgálat története: kis anarchista szakácskönyve nem a jóléti társadalom felszámolásához kínál kétes hitelű recepteket - oldalain inkább a menekülés lehetőségeivel, majd lehetetlenségével történő szembesülés revelatív erejű krónikája pereg másodpercenként 24 filmkockás sebességgel. Nem csoda, hogy a kultuszkönyvből - 1999-ben, David Fincher rendezésében - ragyogó kultuszfilm is készült.

Chuck Palahniuk - Beautiful ​You
A ​Harcosok klubja szerzőjének vadonatúj regénye disztópikus világba enged bepillantást: eljön a kor, amikor a nőknek nem lesz többé szükségük férfiakra, hiszen sokkal különb gyönyört remélhetnek a ravasz fortéllyal rájuk tukmált szexkellékektől. Otthagyják családjukat, karrierjüket, bezárkóznak szobájukba, és csak akkor jönnek elő, ha lemerült az elem a készülékben. Penny Harrigan egy menő manhattani jogi cégnél dolgozó, tipikus szürke egér: nem túl szép, nincs sok pénze, nincs pasija sem. Ezért igencsak váratlanul éri, amikor a cég egyik ügyfele, a szoftvermilliárdos C. Linus Maxwell vacsorára invitálja egy exkluzív étterembe. A férfi utána egy párizsi hotellakosztályba csábítja Pennyt, ahol egy hosszas és a kísérleti alanyt alattomos módon kihasználó tortúra veszi kezdetét: a lánynak a Beautiful You fantázianévre hallgató testápolási eszközcsalád fejlesztésében kell közreműködnie. De mire ráébred, hogy bajban van, már késő A regény Palahniukra jellemző módon gyilkos szatírája a korunk vásárlóvá alacsonyított emberét a végletekig kihasználó manipulatív praktikáknak. Nem lehetett kétséges, hogy mi fog történni ezután. Miközben televíziós kamerák közvetítették a jelenetet szerte a világon, Clarissa Hind, az Egyesült Államok negyvenhetedik elnöke előhúzott egy ,35-ös kaliberű pisztolyt a blézere belső zsebéből. A fegyver csövét a halántékához illesztette. És meghúzta a ravaszt.

Chuck Palahniuk - Fulladás
Chuck ​Palahniuk negyedik regénye újabb lázálomszerű mélyrepülés az amerikai pszichébe. Victor Mancini szexmániások csoportterápiáin táplálja nemi éhségét, reménytelen szerelem hevíti Alzheimer-kóros édesanyja csinos kezelőorvosa iránt, miközben estéről estére megöli magát, hogy fedezni tudja a kórházi költségeket: éttermi vacsorák alatt szándékosan félrenyeli az ételét, hogy a megmentésére siető "nap hősei" a későbbiekben elkötelezett pártfogókként támogassák. Palahniuk gyorsmontázsos mozaik-prózájában feleleveníti a korábbi műveiből ismerős motívumokat. A "Harcosok klubja" és a "Halálkultusz" önjelölt, önpusztító messiáshőseinek fehér izzású nihilizmusát egyfajta ciánkeserű optimizmusra cseréli: a "Cigányút" kínkeserves passió, egy cinikus-romantikus szerelmiháromszög-történet anya, fiú és szentlélek között, egyben maró humorú társadalmi szatíra, amely kisesszéiben egymás után számol le a vallás, az oktatás, az egészségügy, a média és a hatóságok intézményeivel. Az eszmélés, a megváltás lehetőségének meséje ez: lényegében arról a pillanatról szól, amikor a szerző szavaival "a függőségek többé már nem takarják el az igazságot."

Since ​he was discharged from the mental hospital, Sebastian has been a do-nothing cog in the world’s largest military-industrial corporation: Rize or Die.

Chuck Palahniuk - Tell-All
"Tell-All" ​is many things: a Sunset Boulevard-inflected homage to Old Hollywood when grand dames like Bette Davis and Joan Crawford ruled the roost. This is: a Douglas Sirk-inspired melodrama full of big gestures and muted psychic torment; a veritable Tourette's Syndrome of rat-tat-tat name-dropping, from the A-list to the Z-list; and, a merciless send-up of of Lillian Hellman's habit of butchering the truth that will have Mary McCarthy cheering from the beyond. Our narrator is Hazie Coogan, who for decades has tended to the outsized needs of Katherine 'Miss Kathie' Kenton, a star of the wattage of Elizabeth Taylor and the emotional torments of Judy Garland. The survivor of multiple marriages, career comebacks and cosmetic surgeries, Miss Kathie lives the way legends should. But danger lurks when gentleman caller Webster Carlton Westward III arrives and worms his way into Miss Kathie's heart and boudoir. Hazie discovers that this bounder has already written his celebrity tell-all memoir and that it foretells her death in a forthcoming Lillian Hellman-penned World War II musical extravaganza Unconditional Surrender, in which Miss Kathie portrays Lily defeating Japanese forces from Pearl Harbor to Nagasaki. As the body count mounts, Hazie must execute a plan to save Katherine Kenton for her fans - and for posterity. A dark reimagining of All About Eve and an hilarious assault on celebrity, "Tell-All" is vintage Palahniuk.

Chuck Palahniuk - Phoenix
Rachel ​married Ted because he was uncomplicated and loyal. But he was also devoted to his wretched house (done up in black granite, black appliances, even black dishware) and his first love, an old, flatulent cat named Belinda Carlisle. Once Rachel becomes pregnant, Ted reluctantly agrees to move and give up the cat. But the house doesn't sell, and Belinda Carlisle still haunts their home: every day the creature becomes fatter and more malodorous. When the house burns to the ground in a freak conflagration and the couple's daughter, April, is born blind soon thereafter, the marriage is never the same again. Only on a business trip three years later does Rachel begin to reckon with the damage. In an Orlando motel room far from Ted and April, Rachel wonders: Is her simple-minded husband more vindictive and manipulative than even Rachel could have imagined? How far will she go to keep the upper hand—a bit of emotional and physical torture, perhaps? Will she win the battle, only to lose so much else?

Chuck Palahniuk - Damned
Adolescent ​is hell? You have no idea... Welcome to the Inferno by way of the Breakfeast Club, from the mind of American fiction's most brilliant troublemaker. “Are you there, Satan? It’s me, Madison,” declares the whip-tongued thirteen-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk’s subversive new work of fiction. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, while her parents are off touting their new projects and adopting more orphans. She dies over the holiday of a mari­juana overdose—and the next thing she knows, she’s in Hell. Madison shares her cell with a motley crew of young sinners that is almost too good to be true: a cheerleader, a jock, a nerd, and a punk rocker, united by fate to form the six-feet-under version of everyone’s favorite detention movie. Madison and her pals trek across the Dandruff Desert and climb the treacherous Mountain of Toenail Clippings to confront Satan in his citadel. All the popcorn balls and wax lips that serve as the currency of Hell won’t buy them off. This is the afterlife as only Chuck Palahniuk could imagine it: a twisted inferno where The English Patient plays on end­less repeat, roaming demons devour sinners limb by limb, and the damned interrupt your dinner from their sweltering call center to hard-sell you Hell. He makes eternal torment, well, simply divine.

Chuck Palahniuk - Non-Fiction
Comprises ​of the pieces that aim to prove just how different, in ways both highly entertaining and deeply unsettling. This work contains essays or vignettes that offer a facet of existence as lived in or observed by one of America's original literary talents.

Chuck Palahniuk - The ​Invention of Sound
A ​father searching for his missing daughter is suddenly given hope when a major clue is discovered, but learning the truth could shatter the seemingly perfect image Hollywood is desperate to uphold. Gates Foster lost his daughter, Lucy, seventeen years ago. He's never stopped searching. Suddenly, a shocking new development provides Foster with his first major lead in over a decade, and he may finally be on the verge of discovering the awful truth. Meanwhile, Mitzi Ives has carved out a space among the Foley artists creating the immersive sounds giving Hollywood films their authenticity. Using the same secret techniques as her father before her, she's become an industry-leading expert in the sound of violence and horror, creating screams so bone-chilling, they may as well be real. Soon Foster and Ives find themselves on a collision course that threatens to expose the violence hidden beneath Hollywood's glamorous façade. A grim and disturbing reflection on the commodification of suffering and the dangerous power of art, The Invention of Sound is Chuck Palahniuk at the peak of his literary powers -- his most suspenseful, most daring, and most genre-defying work yet.

Chuck Palahniuk - Survivor
Tender ​Branson, the last surviving member of the Creedish Death Cult, has commandeered a Boeing 747, emptied of passengers, in order to tell his story to the plane's black box before it crashes. Brought up by the repressive cult and, like all Creedish younger sons, hired out as a domestic servant, Tender finds himself suddenly famous when his fellow cult members all commit suicide. As media messiah he ascends to the very top of the freak-show heap before finally and apocaliptically spiralling out of control.

Chuck Palahniuk - Rabbia
"Rabbia" ​prende la forma di una storia (romanzesca) orale di Buster "Rant" Casey, nella quale un assortimento di amici, nemici, ammiratori, detrattori e familiari dicono la loro su questo personaggio malvagio (ma forse no), morto in circostanze tanto misteriose quanto leggendarie, che forse è stato il più efficiente serial killer di questa epoca. Buster era il tipico ragazzino di una cittadina nel bel mezzo del nulla, alla ricerca di emozioni forti in un mondo di video games e di film di avventure e di azione. Dopo le prime ribellioni al liceo scappa dal suo villaggio natale di Middleton e va nella grande città, dove ben presto diventa il leader di un gruppo di giovani dediti a una sorta di rito-gioco di demolizione urbana chiamato Party Crashing: nelle notti prescelte i partecipanti decorano in modi bizzarri le loro auto e quando arriva il momento cominciano ad attaccarsi a vicenda cercando di cozzare colle proprie vetture contro quelle degli altri. In occasione di una di queste violente cacce notturne Casey incontra la morte al volante. E dopo la sua morte spettacolare, i suoi amici raccolgono le testimonianze necessarie a ricostruire una storia orale della sua breve vita. Ma Casey è morto davvero?

Chuck Palahniuk - Láthatatlan ​szörnyek
A ​Láthatatlan szörnyeket, Chuck Palahniuk sorrendben harmadik regényét egyik kritikusa találóan a Harcosok klubja női változatának nevezte. És valóban, a szerző mintha a Szex és New York csillogó világát vegyítené Bret Easton Ellis véres horrormeséivel. Egy eszelős történetet olvashatunk a divat és a modellek csillogó, de üres világáról, szerelmes betegekről és a beteges szerelemről, valamint a mindent elsöprő gyűlöletről. Shannon McFarland karrierjét derékba töri egy szörnyű „baleset”: egy szép napon éppen hazafelé hajt, amikor valaki rálő az autójára. A lövés következtében Shannon elveszíti az alsó állkapcsát, a munkáját és a vőlegényét. Szörnyeteg lesz, akire senki nem mer ránézni. A külvilág többé nem vesz róla tudomást: láthatatlanná válik. A kórházban, a beszédterapeuta rendelőjében megismerkedik Brandy Alexanderrel, aki az utolsó műtétjére vár, hogy végre-valahára igazi nővé válhasson. Brandy, a királynők királynője valójában férfi, de talán ő az egyetlen, aki megérti, milyen szenvedésen megy keresztül Shannon. Sajátos, sokkterápiára emlékeztető módszerét alkalmazva kezelésbe veszi Shannont, és együtt vágnak neki az országot átszelő, őrült utazásnak, amelynek során milliomos öreglányok gyógyszerkészleteit fosztogatják, felfedezik és elpusztítják a múltat, hogy újrateremtsék nem létező jövőjüket. Chuck Palahniuk, szokásához híven, ezúttal is a Harcosok klubja óta védjegyévé vált, graffiti-tömörségű, szikár prózában ostorozza a divatipar talmi csillogását, és egy szürreális történeten keresztül tárja olvasói elé a fogyasztói társadalomról alkotott lesújtó véleményét. Nem csak hölgyeknek, de csakis erős idegzetű olvasóknak.

Chuck Palahniuk - Rant
Buster ​Casey was every small kid born into a small town, searching for real thrills in a world of video games and action/adventure movies. The high school rebel who wins, Rant Casey escapes from his hometown of Middleton for the big city, where he becomes a leader of an urban demolition derby called Party Crashing. During specific windows of time, in limited areas of the city, Party Crashers look for the designated markings in order to stalk and crash into each other. It's in this violent, late-night hunting game that Casey meets three friends. And after his spectacular death, these friends gather the testimony needed to build an oral history of his short life.

Chuck Palahniuk - Invisible ​Monsters
She's ​a catwalk model who has everything: a boyfriend, a career, a loyal best friend. But when a sudden motor 'accident' leaves her disfigured and incapable of speech, she goes from being the beautiful centre of attention to being an invisible monster, so hideous that no one will acknowledge she exists. Enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from being a real woman, who will teach her that reinventing yourself means erasing your past and making up something better, and that salvation hides in the last place you'll ever want to look. The narrator must exact revenge upon Evie, her best friend and fellow model; kidnap Manus, her two-timing ex-boyfriend; and hit the road with Brandy in search of a brand-new past, present and future.

Chuck Palahniuk - Pygmy
Agent ​Number 67, nicknamed Pygmy for his diminutive size, arrives in the United States from his totalitarian homeland (a mash-up of North Korea, Cuba, Communist-era China, and Nazi-era Germany), as an 'exchange student' into the welcoming arms of his Simpsons-spinoff Midwestern host family. Host cow father (he works in the biological weapons complex outside of town), chicken neck mother, pig dog brother, and the disconcertingly self-possessed cat sister introduce Pygmy into the rituals of postmodern American life, which he views with utter contempt. Along with his fellow operatives, all indoctrinated into the mindset of the totalitarian state, he is planning something big, something truly, truly awful, that will bring this big dumb country and its fat, dumb inhabitants to their knees. "Pygmy" is a comedy. It is also Chuck Palahniuk's finest, most ambitious novel since "Fight Club".

Chuck Palahniuk - Stranger ​Than Fiction
Chuck ​Palahniuk' s world has always been, well, different from yours and mine. In his first collection of nonfiction, Chuck Palahniuk brings us into this world, and gives us a glimpse of what inspires his fiction. At the Rock Creek Lodge Testicle Festival in Missoula, Montana, average people perform public sex acts on an outdoor stage. In a mansion once occupied by The Rolling Stones, Marilyn Manson reads his own Tarot cards and talks sweetly to his beautiful actress girlfriend. Across the country, men build their own full-size castles and rocketships that will send them into space. Palahniuk himself experiments with steroids, works on an assembly line by day and as a hospice volunteer by night, and experiences the brutal murder of his father by a white supremacist. With this new direction, Chuck Palahniuk has proven he can do anything.

Chuck Palahniuk - Snuff
From ​the master of literary mayhem and provocation, this is a full-frontal Triple-X novel that goes where no work of fiction has gone before. 'Six hundred dudes. One porn queen. A world record for the ages. A must-have movie for every discerning collector of things erotic'. 'Didn't one of us on purpose set out to make a snuff movie?' - Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera with six hundred men, "Snuff" unfolds from the perspectives of Mr 72, Mr 137 and Mr 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

Chuck Palahniuk - Lullaby
Carl ​Streator is a reporter investigating Sudden Infant Death Syndrome for a soft-news feature. After responding to several calls with paramedics, he notices that all the dead children were read the same poem from the same library book the night before they died. It's a 'culling song' - an ancient African spell for euthanising sick or old people. Researching it, he meets a woman who killed her own child with it accidentally. He himself accidentally killed his own wife and child with the same poem twenty years earlier. Together, the man and the woman find and destroy all copies of this book, and try not to kill every rude sonofabitch that gets in their way. Lullaby is a comedy/drama/tragedy. In that order. It may also be Chuck Palahniuk's best book yet.

Chuck Palahniuk - Diary
Diary ​takes the form of a 'coma diary' kept by one Misty Wilmot as her husband lies senseless in hospital after a suicide attempt. Once she was an art student dreaming of creativity and freedom; now, after marrying Peter at at school and being brought back to once quaint, now tourist-overrun Waytansea Island, she's been reduced to the condition of a resort hotel maid. Peter, it turns out, has been hiding rooms in houses he's refurbished and srawling vile messages all over the walls. Angry homeowners are suing, and Misty's dreams of artistic greatness are in ashes. But then, as if posessed by the spirit of Maura Kinkaid, a fabled Waytansea artist of the nineteenth century, Misty begins painting again, compulsively. The canvases are taken away by her mother in law and her doctor, who seem to have a plan for Misty - and for all those annoying tourists...
