PreOrder The New Non-Fiction Anthology 'You Do Not Talk About Fight Club' Today!
For many of you, the conception of this anthology slipped under the radar. I don't think I was even sure it was happening until they asked me to contribute to it. You Do Not Talk About Fight Club: I Am Jack's Completely Unauthorized Essay Collection (wow, that's a mouthfull), is an anthology of essays written about Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk, and his other works. It was edited by Read Mercer Schuchardt, a fellow attendee of the first Chuck Palahniuk conference held in Edinboro, PA. (we made a documentary about the second one). Similar to people like Jeff Sartain, upon first meeting Read, I was struck by what an academic he was. I mean that in the best way. Read was one of the first Palahniuk fans I met that wanted to seriously analyze Chuck's works, and push others to do the same.
In the years that followed that weekend conference, Read kept in touch whenever he had news. He then began contacting me about a year ago when this anthology first started coming together. I wasn't so sure how serious it was to coming to fruition at that time, and I was (like always) extremely busy on the website. So when Read asked me to write the introduction to the book, I had to politely decline. In hindsight, I'm glad I did, because I was replaced in this honor by none other than Chuck Palahniuk himself.
I am now happy to report that You Do Not Talk About Fight Club: I Am Jack's Completely Unauthorized Essay Collection has a release date of September 1st, and you can PreOrder It Here!
