For some reason I don¹t think I saw fight club and I should in any case...
I got onto the Chuck Palahniuk website last night and also read his whole
wikipedia entry...very interesting indeed, especially the wiki, to gather
thoughts and appreciation...There is something in me that rings a curious
doorbell linking him to people like Maurice G. Dantec in France (translated
in US nowadays), where exagerated noir joins gore, it¹s like hyper noir or
post noir, linking sci-fi to noir, to gore...it steps out of the frame and
becomes layers upon layers of horror...There is a French word that describes
it démesure¹ and the only translation I find is outrageousness or
excessiveness...Moreover I wonder if CP has put his fingers in the same
philosophical and political nihilistic and christian-futurist deviations
than several of these sons of cyberpunk¹ like Dantec...??
Is this assesment correct?...I have read Dantec (and got disapointed very
quickly after Les Racines du Mal & Babylon Babies) but not Chuck...and I¹m
hooked on Peace for the time being...should I switch soon...???
