Lirette, Caitlin AP English 11 Hicks 16 April 2014 Chuck Palahniuk 1. Burgess, Olivia. "Revolutionary Bodies in Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club." Utopian Studies 1 Jan. 2012: 1-19. Print. This article analyzes Palahniuk’s most famous novel Fight Club, discussing major themes including revolution, utopianism, and freedom. Fight Club not only significant for its utopian concepts and ideas, but for its modernism, and how it is applicable to today’s society. This article is simply an analysis by Burgess, which contains opinionated ideas, making the source slightly bias, as compared to other sources. All information in this article, however, is sourced. “Revolutionary Bodies” thoroughly analyzes Fight Club, Palahniuk’s most popular novel, in nineteen pages, discussing major themes. When analyzing Palahniuk’s life to see what is reflected from his works, having sources like these, evaluating the works themselves, is equally as important. 2. Valby, Karen. "CHUCK PALAHNIUK DOES NOT ATTEND FIGHT CLUB." Entertainment 26 Sept. 2003: n. pag. Web. 24 Apr. 2014. <,,488215,00.html> This source contains an interview with Palahniuk himself, discussing his current life, as well as his childhood, and how it relates to his books. Certain things in his life, like death and fame, are discussed with him. Lots of books are mentioned, and there are lots of quotes from him. It is a magazine article, containing a full interview of Chuck Palahniuk, published in 2003. The many quotes in the interview along with lengthy details make this source reliable. The entire interview with Chuck is about his past life, which is very important information for this essay. Out of all the sources, a lot of information will probably come from this one, due to its many details of Palahniuk’s past. 3. Pitz, Marylynne. "'Fight Club' Author Chuck Palahniuk Warns of Isolation." Pittsburg Post-Gazette 26 Oct. 2011: n. pag. Print. This is an interview of Palahniuk in 2011, a more recent interview. In the interview he discusses the books “Damned”, including lots of direct quotes and personal beliefs behind writing the book. Being an interview of Palahniuk, as well as a newspaper article, the source is reliable. The goal of this source is to discuss one of his newer books, and his reasonings for writing it. Because there is little information dealing with his past life, it is weaker than other sources. However, because he talks about a book other than Fight Club, there is still valuable information in it. 4. Seven, Richard. "Author Chuck Palahniuk: On Portland's Edge." The Seattle Times 2005: n. pag. Print. This interviewer spends a day with Palahniuk, and they drive around Portland, to certain stores that deal with books he’s written, and talks about his life. There is information about him moving to Washington to help his mom for a while, and about where he currently lives, and lived when he wrote his books. He talks about where he lived with his siblings as a kid, and his first jobs. Because the article is a narrative of a day with Palahniuk, some descriptions may not be reliable. However, there are several exact quotes of Palahniuk talking about his life, which is credible. There is lots of information in this article discussing his past, including his childhood and early jobs, as well as his current lifestyle. This is another source to get lots of information from. 5. Chaplinsky, Joshua. "Strange But True: A Short Biography of Chuck Palahniuk." The Cult. N.p., n.d. Web. 24 Apr. 2014. This source is a thorough biography of Palahniuk, possessing information from his birth date to the date of a book that has yet to come out. There are lots of roots to what he writes about, including awards he got in school and college, and being a member of The Cacophony Society, which influenced Project Mayhem, from Fight Club. This source is probably one of the most reliable, containing the most information about his life. There are no personal opinions to make it appear biased; it is strictly factual. This source will probably be used far more than any other due to its accurate facts dealing with every part of Palahniuk’s life. There is information on what inspired what in his novels, as well as awards and acknowledgments he received. 6. Bunn, Austin. "OPEN BOOK." Advocate 20 May 2008: 42-45. Print. This source, another newspaper article, discusses the life, work, and sexuality of Chuck Palahniuk. Themes in his books “Fight Club”, "Rant," and "Snuff" are analyzed. This source contains several direct quotes of Chuck, and goes into themes in several novels. The major themes discussed in this source is very relevant for this essay. The information regarding Palahniuk’s sexuality is also important, because of how drastically different it is compared to his works. Not the most important article, this source still has useful information. 7. Hedegaard, Erik. "A Heart Breaking Life of Staggering Weirdness." Rolling Stone 30 June 2005: n. pag. MasterFILE Premier. Web. 29 Apr. 2014. < direct=true&db=f5h&AN=17452516&site=ehost-live>.
