Chuck Palahniuk Interviewed by SuicideGirls.com For FIGHT CLUB 2

Chuck sat down with Alex Dueben for a big interview at SuicideGirls.com all about Fight Club 2.

ALEX DUEBEN:  Where did the idea for Fight Club 2 come from? Had you been thinking about this for a while?

CHUCK PALAHNIUK:  It’s hard to pin it down to one specific place where the idea came from. I never dreamed that I would have to be talking about the original story for two decades. I spent a lot of last summer in Madrid reading all of Poe and Lovecraft and studying the mythology that Lovecraft created and that Stephen King has created around so much of his work–where he took one story and explored it from all these different angles in subsequent books. I thought, why not create a larger mythology that uses Fight Club as an episode and then expand the story into history into the centuries before that and then into the future and making a mythology instead of just one story.
