'Invisible Monsters' Is Finally Coming To Hardcover

'Invisible Monsters' Is Finally Coming To Hardcover

For several years now, there has been an underground movement to get Invisible Monsters released in hardcover.  Believe it or not, this beloved book of Chuck's is the only novel of his that was never released in this format.  At the time, this was Chuck's specific wish. Invisible Monsters (originally titled Manifesto) was written before Fight Club but was never originally allowed to see the light of day because his publishers rejected it, due to its disturbing content.

Tyler Durden Quote In High School Hallway

Tyler Durden Quote In High School Hallway

The original blogger said it perfectly: "Man, I wish my high school had been this cool." Really though, I grew up in an era where the most subversive book taught in school was The Catcher in the Rye.  Now don't get me wrong, I love that book.  But nowadays, we get at least an email a month from a college professor, high school teacher or student who informs us that Fight Club has joined their curriculum. 

This school seems to have taken that to the next level.  Check out those hallway quote from Tyler Durden!
