    The quality of Chuck Palahniuk's writing that I look forward to, and others avoid him for, can be summed up in one short passage from his book Damned. “His lips webbed with the noxious fluids inherent in adult sexual congress, Archer shouts, "I AM THE LIZARD KING... !" At that, I stuff his head back to do hidden oral battle with the stiffening, engorged clitoral tissues. The giant looks down upon me, her eyes also glazed with orgasmic ecstasy.

    The issue at the heart of the David Fincher film, Fight Club, is not that of man’s rebellion against a society of “men raised by women”. This is a film that outwardly exhibits itself as promoting the resurrection of the ‘ultra-male’, surreptitiously holding women accountable for the decay of manhood. However, the underlying truth of the film is not of resisting the force of destruction that is ‘woman’, or of resisting the corruption of manhood at her hand, but of penetrating the apathy needed to
