His twelve novels, which he calls ‘contemporary romances’,
include Tell-All, Pygmy, Snuff, Rant, Haunted, Lullaby, Diary, Survivor

Club by David Fincher; Choke starring Anjelica Huston and Sam Rockwell;
and the short film Romance, released in early 2013. A musical adaptation
of Fight Club by David Fincher is in the pipeline, and film adaptations
of Snuff and Invisible Monsters are scheduled for release in 2014.
Palahniuk is currently working on a graphic novel sequel to Fight
Club. He lives in Portland, Oregon.
