Chuck Palahniuk könyvei a rukkolán
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 - 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 - 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."
Chuck Palahniuk - Harcosok klubja
Szombat esténként névtelen átlagemberek, autószerelők, felszolgálók, irodai alkalmazottak gyűlnek össze egy külvárosi bárban, hogy záróra után az alagsor betonpadlóján könyörtelen ökölharcokat vívjanak egymással. A harcosok nem kötnek fogadásokat, nem hirdetnek győzteseket; a küzdelmek egyetlen célja, hogy visszanyerjék önbizalmukat, a hitet, hogy saját kezűleg irányíthatják a sorsukat. A zártkörű klub megalapítója és teljhatalmú vezére Tyler Durden, mozigépész, szappanügynök és anarchista messiás egy személyben, aki semmitől sem riad vissza, hogy fanatizálja az embereit. A klubtagok lassan tehetetlen bábokká válnak Durden ördögi játszmájában: egyre véresebb összecsapások követik egymást, míg egyikük megsejti a klub valódi célját. De lehet, hogy már túl késő... Chuck Palahniuk kultikus regényéből napjaink egyik legeredetibb amerikai rendezője, David Fincher (Hetedik, Játszma) készített lélegzetelállítóan fordulatos, lenyűgöző látványvilágú filmet, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter, Meat Loaf és a Tyler Durdent alakító Brad Pitt főszereplésével.

Chuck Palahniuk - Beautiful You (angol)
"A billion husbands are about to be replaced." From the author of Fight Club, the classic portrait of the damaged contemporary male psyche, now comes a novel about the apocalyptic marketing possibilities of female pleasure. Sisters will be doing it for themselves. And doing it. And doing it. And doing it some more. . . Penny Harrigan is a low level associate in a big Manhattan law firm with an apartment in Queens and no love life at all. So it comes as a great shock when she finds herself invited to dinner by one C. Linus Maxwell, aka "Climax-Well," a software mega-billionaire and lover of the most gorgeous and accomplished women on earth. After dining at Manhattan''s most exclusive restaurant, he whisks Penny of to a hotel suite in Paris, where he proceeds, notebook in hand, to bring her to previously undreamed-of heights of orgasmic pleasure for days on end. What's not to like? This: Penny discovers that she is a test subject for the final development of a line of sex toys to be marketed in a nationwide chain of boutiques called "Beautiful You." So potent and effective are these devices that women by the millions line up outside the stores on opening day and then lock themselves in their room with them and stop coming out. Except to buy batteries. Maxwell's plan for erotically enabled world domination must be stopped. But how?
Chuck Palahniuk - Choke
Victor Mancini has devised a complicated scam to pay for his mother's hospital care: pretend to be choking on a piece of food in a restaurant and the person who 'saves you' will feel responsible for you for the rest of their lives. Multiply that a couple of hundred times and you generatea healthy flow of cheques, week in, week out. Victor also works at a theme park with a motley group of losers, cruises sex addiction groups for action, and visits his mother, whose Alzheimer's disease now hides what may be the startling truth about his parentage.
Chuck Palahniuk - Haunted
"Haunted" is a novel made up of stories: twenty-three of them to be precise. Twenty-two of the most horrifying, hilarious, mind-blowing, stomach-churning tales you'll ever encounter - sometimes all at once. They are told by the people who have all answered the ad headlined 'Artists Retreat: Abandon your life for three months'. They are led to believe that here they will leave behind all the distractions of 'real life' that are keeping them from creating the masterpiece that is in them. But 'here' turns out to be a cavernous and ornate old theatre where they are utterly isolated from the outside world - and where heat and power and, most importantly, food are in increasingly short supply. And the more desperate the circumstances become, the more desperate the stories they tell - and the more devious their machinations become to make themselves the hero of the inevitable play/movie/non-fiction blockbuster that will certainly be made from their plight. "Haunted" is at one level a satire of reality television. It draws from a great literary tradition - "The Canterbury Tales", "The Decameron", the English storytellers in the Villa Diodati who produced, among other works, "Frankenstein" - to tell an utterly contemporary tale of people desperate that their story be told at any cost. Appallingly entertaining, "Haunted" is Chuck Palahniuk at his finest - which means his most extreme and his most provocative.
Chuck Palahniuk - Fight Club
Every weekend, in basements and parking lots across the country, young men with good white-collar jobs and absent fathers take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded for 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 revenge on a world where cancer support groups have the corner on human warmth.
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 - 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...
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 - Doomed
Madison Spencer, the liveliest and snarkiest dead girl in the universe, continues the afterlife adventure begun in Chuck Palahniuk’s bestseller Damned. Just as that novel brought us a brilliant Hell that only he could imagine, Doomed is a dark and twisted apocalyptic vision from this provocative storyteller. The bestselling Damned chronicled Madison’s journey across the unspeakable (and really gross) landscape of the afterlife to confront the Devil himself. But her story isn’t over yet. In a series of electronic dispatches from the Great Beyond, Doomed describes the ultimate showdown between Good and Evil. After a Halloween ritual gone awry, Madison finds herself trapped in Purgatory - or, as mortals like you and I know it, Earth. She can see and hear every detail of the world she left behind, yet she’s invisible to everyone who’s still alive. Not only do people look right through her, they walk right through her as well. The upside is that, no longer subject to physical limitations, she can pass through doors and walls. Her first stop is her parents’ luxurious apartment, where she encounters the ghost of her long-deceased grandmother. For Madison, the encounter triggers memories of the awful summer she spent upstate with Nana Minnie and her grandfather, Papadaddy. As she revisits the painful truth of what transpired over those months (including a disturbing and finally fatal meeting in a rest stop’s fetid men’s room, in which... well, never mind), her saga of eternal damnation takes on a new and sinister meaning. Satan has had Madison in his sights from the very beginning: through her and her narcissistic celebrity parents, he plans to engineer an era of eternal damnation. For everyone. Once again, our unconventional but plucky heroine must face her fears and gather her wits for the battle of a lifetime. Dante Alighieri, watch your back; Chuck Palahniuk is gaining on you.
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 - Kárhozott
Chuck Palahniuk legfrissebb - angolul 2011-ben megjelent - regényét tartja kezében az olvasó. A Harcosok klubjának szerzője ezúttal sem kímél senkit és semmit: elbeszélője, Maddy Spencer, a tizenhárom éves, halott, kövér kislány a pokol tájain bolyong a Nulladik óra című film szereplőire feltűnően emlékeztető kis csapatával, s közben a Sátánhoz címzett meséjében osztja az élőket és a holtakat, boldog-boldogtalant. Lassan visszatérnek az emlékei arról, hogyan halhatott meg, s igyekszik kitalálni, milyen "élet" is vár rá a halál után. A Dante és Swift nyomdokaiban járó fergeteges palahniuki szatíra célpontja az immár szokásos kulturális visszásságok mellett ezúttal az elbizakodott hit – önmagunkban, melyet Maddynek is fel kell adnia, ha beleszólást szeretne saját sorsa alakulásába, és vissza szeretne térni evilági szeretteihez. Ehhez azonban nem kisebb ellenféllel kell szembenéznie, mint magával a Sátánnal...
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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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 - 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.
