Reading Chuck Palahniuk by Cynthia Kuhn


Reading Chuck Palahniuk by Cynthia Kuhn

Reading Chuck Palahniuk examines how the author pushes through a variety of boundaries to shape fiction and to question American identity in powerful and important ways. Palahniuk's innovative stylistic accomplishments and notoriously disturbing subject matters invite close analysis, and the new essays in this collection offer fascinating insights about Palahniuk's texts, contexts, contributions, and controversies. Addressing novels from Fight Club through Snuff, as well as his nonfiction, this volume will be valuable to anyone with a serious interest in contemporary literature.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.
