Chuck Palahniuk

From Chuck Palahniuk's Q & A with Anna Metcalfe of the Financial Times:

What book changed your life?

At the Gates of the Animal Kingdom by Amy Hempel showed me the lean quality of prose.

* * *

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.
Read the complete Q & A.

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."

--Marshal Zeringue
