Which literary character most resembles you?
Nick Carraway in The Great Gatsby. He’s the person on the outside looking in, which is what I’m like as a writer.
Pygmy, Palahniuk's latest novel, is being identified as "The Manchurian Candidate meets South Park—Chuck Palahniuk’s finest novel since the generation-defining Fight Club."
