James R: '"Recycling and speed limits are bullshit," Tyler said. "They're like someone who quits smoking on his deathbed." It's Project Mayhem that's going to save the world. A cultural ice age. A prematurely induced dark age. Project Mayhem will force humanity to go dormant or into remission long enough for Earth to recover. "You justify anarchy," Tyler says, "You figure it out."' - Fight Club, p.125.
Flicking back through Chuck Palahniuk's 1996 debut novel ahead of picking up the first issue of Fight Club 2, a number of things struck me. Firstly, it is amazing how perfectly formed both Palahniuk's style and voice as an author are, and also how immensely readable and essential it remains as a story. Before we get on to the keenly anticipated sequel published by Dark Horse, it's worth highlighting just why this story matters.
