Chuck Palahniuk is an American author born on February 21, 1962. He is known most for writing the novel ''Literature/FightClub'', which the movie was based on, and has since then garnered a respectable following. He has a minimalist writing style that utilizes a limited vocabulary, short sentences, and is meant to mimic the way an average person would talk when relaying a story to someone else. His stories typically start [[HowWeGotHere close to the end, with the protagonist recounting how he got there]], the events of which might also be told [[AnachronicOrder out of chronological order]] as well.

His earlier works fall under the label Transgressional Fiction, while his later works contain more horror elements. Many people feel that his work is overly nihilistic and [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism cynical]], and have labeled him a shock writer. Palahniuk does not believe that his work is in any way cynical or nihilistic, and has gone on record referring to himself as a Romantic—presumably the old ChivalricRomance.

'''His body of work includes:'''

* Fiction:
** ''Literature/FightClub'' (1996)
** ''Literature/{{Survivor}}'' (1999)
** ''Literature/InvisibleMonsters'' (1999)
*** ''[[UpdatedRerelease Invisible Monsters Remix]]'' (2012)
** ''Literature/{{Choke}}'' (2001)
** ''{{Lullaby}}'' (2002)
** ''Diary'' (2003)
** ''Literature/{{Haunted 2005}}'' (a book of short stories) (2005)
** ''{{Rant}}'' (2007)
** ''Snuff'' (2008)
** ''{{Pygmy}}'' (2009)
** ''Tell-All'' (2010)
** ''Damned'' (2011)
** ''Doomed'' (2013, to be released in October)
** ''Beautiful You'' (2014, TBA)
** ''Make Something Up'' (2015, TBA)
* Non-fiction:
** ''Fugitives and Refugees: A Walk in Portland, Oregon'' (2003)
** ''Stranger Than Fiction: True Stories'' (2004)
** ''You Do Not Talk About Fight Club: I am Jack's Completely Unauthorized Essay Collection'' (2008) (introduction)
* Film:
** ''Literature/FightClub'' (1999)
** ''Choke'' (2008)
** ''Invisible Monsters'' (2011)
** ''Haunted'' (TBA)

An adaptation of ''Survivor'' has been attempted, but [[TooSoon due to its similarities with the events of September 11, 2001]], they decided to put the project on hold, and to this day it never came to fruition.
-----
!!Tropes found in ChuckPalahniuk's work include:
* AnachronicOrder: Common in many of his novels, but probably most prominent in ''Literature/InvisibleMonsters''.
* {{Antihero}}: Practically all of the protagonists.
* ArcWords: When he uses them, he refers to them as "choruses".
** And what might be considered an arc ''color''. All of his books have a passing reference to cornflower blue.
* AuthorFilibuster
* AuthorAppeal: Quite possibly the color Cornflower Blue.
** And snarky protagonists. And graphic and/or {{Squick}}y sex scenes.
* BeigeProse - Readers may find Palahniuk's terse style honest or lazy or anywhere in between.
* BittersweetEnding: ''Literature/{{Choke}}'' and ''Literature/InvisibleMonsters''.
** Really, ''Snuff'' might count too. It just might.
* BlackHumor
* BodyHorror: "One stupid mistake, and now he'll never be a lawyer."
** The main character in ''Literature/InvisibleMonsters'''s jaw injury.
* BrownNote: He ''wrote a real one'' (''Guts''). See the BrownNote page.
* BuffySpeak: Occurs frequently both in speech and narrated thoughts.
* CatchPhrase: Frequent. Often overlaps with VerbalTic and ArcWords, and key examples include:
** "I am Jack's X" from ''Literature/FightClub''
** "X isn't the right word, but it's the first that comes to mind" and "What would Jesus NOT do?" from ''Literature/{{Choke}}''
** Several from ''Literature/{{Haunted 2005}}'' (due to multiple narrators), such as "Don't laugh, but..." occurring frequently in Mother Nature's story.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Occasional, though the most prevalent example is undoubtedly the first two rules of fight club.
-->''God asks me, "Why?"\\
Why did I cause so much pain?\\
Didn't I realize that each of us is a sacred, unique snowflake of special unique specialness?''
* DownerEnding: Virtually any book that doesn't have a bittersweet end. ''Literature/{{Haunted 2005}}'' is probably the most triumphant example.
** ''{{Pygmy}}'' has a happy ending. Well, sort of.
** Palahniuk's own interpretation of ''Survivor'''s ending is fairly positive.
*** For those of you who don't want to go look for it, this is his interpretation: [[spoiler: The end of Survivor isn't nearly so complicated. It's noted on page 7(8?) that a pile of valuable offerings has been left in the front of the passenger cabin. This pile includes a cassette recorder. Even before our hero starts to dictate his story -- during the few minutes he's supposed to be taking a piss -- he's actually in the bathroom dictating the last chapter into the cassette recorder. It's just ranting, nothing important plot-wise, and it can be interrupted at any point by the destruction of the plane. The minute the fourth engine flames out, he starts the cassette talking, then bails out, into Fertility's waiting arms (she's omniscient, you know). The rest of the book is just one machine whining and bitching to another machine. The crash will destroy the smaller recorder, but the surviving black box will make it appear that Tender is dead.]]
* EvilFeelsGood: A recurring theme in his work.
* EvilutionaryBiologist
* FightClubbing: He wrote the book on it.
* FirstPersonSmartass: Every Palahniuk narrator is this.
** Especially Victor Mancini in ''Literature/{{Choke}}''.
** But not ''{{Pygmy}}''.
* HowWeGotHere: In ''Literature/FightClub'', ''Survivor'', ''Literature/InvisibleMonsters'' and ''{{Lullaby}}''. In an InMediaRes form, where the protagonist starts the narrative at the books climax, and recounts how they got there, and follows up with the resolution.
* {{Minimalism}}: His whole style is based around this.
* MoneyDearBoy: Palahniuk's explanation for the execrable ''Literature/FightClub'' video game. To quote: "They can do whatever they want with my book as long as the fucking check clears."
* NietzscheWannabe: Many themes of his work has drawn criticism for being nihilistic and cynical. Like Nietzsche, while his dark prose does come across as such, hereally isn't (or so he claims). See the main entry above.
* NightmareFace: The protagonist of ''Literature/InvisibleMonsters''. One look at this [[http://chuckpalahniuk.net/files/images/news/invisible-monsters-xander-lg.jpg fan-made image]] (NSFW and very disturbing) should tell you why people are so damn afraid of her.
* NoNameGiven: The narrator of ''Literature/FightClub''.
** Many of his protagonists go unnamed until later in the book, often with a last named being dropped sometime before the full name.
*** The protagonist of ''Literature/InvisibleMonsters'' is unnamed until the very end of the book. The protagonaist from ''Lullaby'' is named about two-thirds the way through the book. The three protagnoists in ''Snuff'' are named at different points theoughout the book, with one of them having been named as by his television persona before his real name is given.
* OneWordTitle: Most of his novels.
* ParallelPornTitles: ''Snuff'' includes a '''hurricane''' of them.
* PerkyGoth: He coined the term "Suicide Girl" to describe this type of woman hanging around Portland, OR. Then [[RuleThirtyFour a website was formed to visually depict such ladies]] and the term stuck for good.
* RealitySubtext: He wrote ''{{Lullaby}}'' to cope with his decision of whether his father's murderer should get the death sentence. ''Lullaby'''s probably one of his saddest works.
** His upcoming novel ''Damned'' was written to deal with his mother's death, too.
* RippedFromTheHeadlines: He's quite fond of basing parts of his novels on anecdotes he's heard or read about. Even "Guts", probably his single most disturbing piece of writing, was based on three true stories.
* ShoutOut: A young repressed gay character named Trevor is killed by the titular Pygmy in Palahniuk's 2009 novel. This is a shout out to ''Survivor'', where a young gay character named Trevor kills himself after being encouraged to do so by Tender Branson.
* ShownTheirWork: The research he carries out for his novels is thorough, to say the least. A friend of his recounted an incidence in which Palahniuk read an entire book on serial killers, the information from which ended up being used on ''one page'' of a novel he was working on (''Lullaby'').
* StraightGay: A few of his characters as well as Palahniuk himself qualify as this.
* StrictlyFormula: To some, Palahniuk constantly writing snarky protagonists can get fairly grating, case in point Haunted, in which every character has the same tone of voice.
* {{Ubermensch}}
* UnreliableNarrator: Many of the protagonists who looking at the world filtered through their own problems, neuroses, and delusions.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Many of Tyler Durden's actions and lines of dialogue are based on things Palahniuk's friends have said and done. Similarly, Marla Singer is named after a girl who used to beat up his sister in school and Palahniuk decided it was the most hateful name he could think of.
