You Do Not Talk About Fight Club : I Am Jack's Completely Unauthorized Essay Collection Paperback / softback

Edited by Read Mercer Schuchardt

Description

Pervasive and multidisciplinary, this insightful exploration discusses how and why this seminal work developed, and continues to grow, such a cult following.

When Fight Club punched its way onto the scene a decade ago, it provided an unprecedented glimpse into the American male's psyche and rapidly turned into a euphemism for a variety of things that should be "just understood" and not otherwise acknowledged.

Key to its success is the variety of lenses through which the story can be interpreted; is it a story of male anxiety in a metrosexual world, of ritual religion in a secular age, of escape from totalitarian capitalism, or the spiritual malaise induced by technologically-oriented society?

Writers, conspiracy theorists, and philosophers are among those ready to talk about Fight Club's ability to be all these and more.
